The New Hampshire Controlled Drug Prescription Health and Safety Program was authorized in June 2012 for the purpose of enhancing patient care, curtailing the misuse and abuse of controlled substances, combating illegal trade in and diversion of controlled substances, and enabling access to prescription information by practitioners, dispensers, and other authorized individuals and agencies.
The New Hampshire Board of Pharmacy will administer and oversee the operation of the program and has selected Health Information Designs (HID) to develop a database that will collect and store prescribing and dispensing data for Schedule II, III, and IV controlled substances. HID’s prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP), RxSentry, is a web-based program that facilitates the collection, analysis, and reporting of information on the prescribing, dispensing, and use of controlled substances.
New Hampshire law requires that each dispenser submit information regarding each prescription dispensed for a Schedule II, III, or IV controlled substance. Each time a controlled substance is dispensed, the dispenser shall submit the information required by New Hampshire law to the PDMP database within seven (7) days of the date the prescription was dispensed.
