Posted about 4 years ago by Tenley Roeder

Legislation passed this year (House Bill 14-1283, now CRS 12-42.5-403) requires all Colorado prescribers who possess a DEA registration and all Colorado licensed pharmacists to register an account with Colorado's Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP). Prescribers with a DEA registration and pharmacists must register an account by the corresponding deadlines below:

Pharmacists and DEA-registered Advanced Practice Nurses: September 30, 2014
DEA-registered Dentists, Veterinarians, Optometrists and Podiatrists: October 31, 2014
DEA-registered Physicians and Physician Assistants: November 30, 2014

Prescribers and pharmacists are encouraged to register an account early but must do so prior to the respective deadlines above.

Please click on the link below to register a PDMP account and for more information about the PDMP in general.

Account creation normally takes less than 5 minutes. Questions regarding how to register a PDMP account may be directed to the PDMP Help Desk at 1-855-263-6403.

The Colorado Prescription Drug Monitoring Program is a public health tool providing prescribers and pharmacists a secure database with immediate access to their patient's history of controlled substance prescriptions (Schedules II - V) that they otherwise may not have.

The information in the PDMP can help prescribers and pharmacists make more informed decisions when considering prescribing or dispensing controlled substances. The secure database provides a more comprehensive health record and connects practitioners to their patients' other prescribers and dispensers.
