The PDMP monitors only the prescribing and dispensing of drugs that contain Schedules II through V controlled dangerous substances (CDS). State and federal law define CDS as substances that have abuse potential. Drugs listed in CDS Schedules II, III, IV and V also have accepted medical uses. This includes opioid pain relievers like oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan, Roxicet), hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab) and methadone prescribed for pain; anti-anxiety and sedative medications like alprazolam (Xanax) and diazepam (Valium); and stimulants like Adderall and Ritalin. The complete list of CDS in Maryland is found in Criminal Law Article, Title 5, Subtitle 4, Annotated Code of Maryland.

The Maryland Department of Health (MDH), Behavioral Health Administration (BHA) is responsible for oversight of the PDMP. MDH receives ongoing advice and consultation from the Advisory Board on Prescription Drug Monitoring on program design, implementation and development. MDH has partnered with Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) and Health Information Designs, LLC (HID) to provide information technology services for the PDMP. CRISP is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit membership corporation that has been designated by the Maryland Health Care Commission as the statewide health information exchange (HIE). Since its inception, CRISP has been fostering the adoption and innovative use of health information technology across Maryland. CRISP has successfully established connectivity to all of the acute care hospitals in the State and provides access to a substantial amount of clinical data for healthcare providers. CRISP has contracted with HID to support PDMP-specific IT services. HID’s RxSentry® is a web-based program that facilitates the collection, analysis, and disclosure of prescription information.
State law holds that prescription data are confidential, privileged, not subject to discovery, subpoena, or other means of legal compulsion in civil litigation and are not public records. To deter misuse, unlawful access to or use of prescription data is punishable by up to one year in prison and a $10,000 fine. The PDMP logs system access and data requests submitted by all registered users and audits are conducted to detect potential violations. Individuals who believe that their prescription information may have been accessed or used inappropriately should contact the PDMP .
The PDMP is authorized under Health-General Article, Section 21-2A, Annotated Code of Maryland (Chapter 166, 2011). PDMP regulations can be found under Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 10.47.07.
No. The patient opt-out available for other CRISP clinical information does not apply to provider access to patient prescription records collected by the PDMP. State law requires that providers have access to PDMP data.
Prescribers in states bordering Maryland (Delaware, DC, West Virginia, Northern Virginia, and Southern Pennsylvania) can have access to the Maryland PDMP for the purpose of treating Maryland patients. If you are a prescriber practicing outside of these states, you should contact your home State to determine if they participate in ‘interstate data sharing’ through the PMP InterConnect data sharing hub. Maryland currently shares with limited states, but will continue adding new connections.
Prescribers in states bordering Maryland (Delaware, DC, West Virginia, Northern Virginia, and Southern Pennsylvania) can have access to the Maryland PDMP (within reason).

Maryland currently shares with limited states, but will continue adding new connections.
Once all steps required for registration are completed, a confirmation is sent to the email you provided during the registration process. You may also check or confirm PDMP registration status here: https://crisphealth.force.com/crispregkeydata
If you do not have a DEA or CDS permit yet, please go to the Standard Registration process. In the DEA field, please enter “No DEA” and in the CDS field, enter “No CDS”. You will get a registration confirmation, but will not be issued a username and password to view the PDMP data until you provide CRISP with your active DEA and CDS. You may contact CRISP Support at firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-952-7477 to provide proof of DEA and Maryland CDS permit numbers
When you obtain a new CDS permit, please email or call CRISP support to ensure we have your updated information. Obtaining a new CDS does not affect your PDMP Registration status, you only need to register once to have met the registration mandate. However, if we do not have all your active CDS on file, that could delay your CDS renewal in the future.
You may have registered under a different CDS number and we need to update your records to reflect all active CDS. Please contact CRISP support to confirm or update your current CDS information.
When you completed registration, a confirmation code was sent to the email you provided as part of the registration process. If you cannot locate that email, you may confirm PDMP registration status here: https://crisphealth.force.com/crispregkeydata . This will display your confirmation code and re-send the code via email.
No, only prescribers who are Maryland-licensed health care professionals authorized by law to prescribe Schedule II-V controlled dangerous substances (CDS) are required to register under the PDMP Registration Mandate.
This may have occurred if you attempted to start a new registration or check your registration status through the “Standard Registration” workflow. Please check for a Confirmation Code at https://crisphealth.force.com/crispregkeydata, which will confirm your registration status or allow you to continue and complete registration. You may also contact CRISP support for assistance.
Understanding which organization you are affiliated with will facilitate the process to establish and maintain the delegator/delegate relationships. If you would like to also access the clinical data (not just PDMP) in the CRISP Portal, an organization is needed for CRISP to carry out the onboarding steps required under our Participation Agreement and Policies & Procedures. CRISP is happy to discuss other services with you and your organization that could assist workflows, transitions of care, and care management. If you are only registering to meet the mandate and do not require PDMP access, please enter “No Organization” for the Organization field.
When you register and are asked for your Organization, please register under the “No Organization” option. You will be able to type in and select the “No Organization” organization name when searching through the account options.
If the email account that you use for CRISP becomes inactivated (job change or for any other reason), please contact CRISP to ensure we have an updated an e-mail address. The email address should be one that only you can access. Please contact CRISP support to update your email and new place of employment to ensure your access to PDMP remains active.
If you completed Registration you are considered registered for the PDMP Mandate. You must contact CRISP to provide your Maryland License number once you receive it so we can identify you are no longer in Residency. We require current License information in order to confirm your registration to OCSA. Failure to provide this information may cause delays in obtaining your CDS permit.
You may be reporting prescription dispensing data to the PDMP on behalf of the pharmacy at which you work. This is an important role and ensures your pharmacy is in compliance with the requirement that any dispenser of controlled dangerous substance (CDS) prescriptions must report these records to the PDMP. However, separate from the requirement on a dispensing entity to report data to the PDMP, there is a legal requirement for all pharmacists licensed in Maryland to be registered with the PDMP as a clinical user. You must individually register in order to become compliant and to get access to the data. Please visit the PDMP Registration page and complete the Standard Registration.
If you have access to CRISP Clinical Data (hospital encounter, labs, and radiology feeds) through an individual log-in account to CRISP, but do not have access to view PDMP data (controlled substances prescription dispensing), you may have a CRISP account but still not have met the PDMP registration requirements. This is easy to fix by simply calling the CRISP Operations Support staff at 877-952-7477 and informing them that you have a CRISP clinical account without PDMP, and you need to become PDMP registered.
If you fall under any condition that means you no longer prescribe CDS or practice pharmacy in Maryland or under a Maryland license, you should confirm this status or intention to the Maryland PDMP Office in writing at email@example.com. More specific instructions follow:
