New Hampshire PDMP

 
 

Practitioner/Pharmacist

Under  Section 318:B33 of the Controlled Drug Prescription Health and Safety Program (NH PDMP), all prescribers and dispensers authorized to prescribe or dispense schedule II-IV controlled substances within the state shall be required to register with the program. Only registered prescribers and dispensers (and their delegates) shall be eligible to access the program.

An “authorized” prescriber is a NH licensed medical professional that has a DEA number assigned to their NH license number. 

An “authorized” pharmacist is any NH licensed pharmacist.  Pending changes to this definition is being sought after in the 2021 legislative session.

Prescribers are required to query the PDMP prior to prescribing an opioid when treating a patient for acute pain and for the initial visit and a minimum of two times during the year when treating a patient with chronic pain (veterinarians are exempt from this).  However, it is highly recommended to query the PDMP when prescribing a patient any controlled substance.

Opioid prescribing rules can be reviewed in their entirety within each respective Board Rules. https://www.oplc.nh.gov/index.htm

Once registered with the program, providers and pharmacists will be able to query their patients using the PDMP database and review any control history they may have prior to prescribing or dispensing controlled substances. We strongly encourage providers and pharmacists to utilize the NH PDMP as a tool to help:

  • provide patients better care in managing their health and prescriptions
  • promote public health and safety through the prevention and treatment for misuse and abuse of controlled substances
  • and to assist in the reduction of the diversion of controlled substances.

 

All system users must apply individually. This includes healthcare providers, pharmacists, and their staff applying as delegates. Access is granted to individuals only—not to clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, or any other health care facility. For additional information, please see the PDMP User Guide.
