The ND Prescription Drug Monitoring Program would like to invite all Practitioners, Pharmacists, and Licensed Addiction Counselors* seeing North Dakota residents to take part in direct access to your patients' controlled substance prescription history. With direct access there is no waiting for office hours to process your own request. When signed up, you will be given direct access to the database at all times. Nurses, pharmacy technicians, or other assistive personnel** will be allowed to access the confidential data on your behalf. They will be required to fill out a Delegate application and will be assigned their own login.

The NDPDMP is a program that collects prescription data on all controlled substances, schedules II-V (including tramadol and carisoprodol) directly from the dispensers. See Program Description.

Before you request a profile history on a patient, that patient must have an appointment to see you or already be in your care. A practitioner, pharmacist or licensed addiction counselor must have a current patient relationship or new appointment scheduled to request a report. Users obtaining information for illegitimate reasons are in violation of the terms of account use agreement and statute, 19-03.5-03. Access to prescription information, and may face penalties including, but not limited to, 5 years in prison and/or up to $5,000 in fines.

Reports should be used to supplement a patient evaluation, to confirm a patient's drug history, or document compliance with a therapeutic regimen. A report can provide a patient's controlled substance history for the past 3 years. Prescription history will be stored for 3 years before being removed from the system.

Data Details

It takes approximately 1-7 days from the date a prescription is dispensed until it appears in a report due to software conversion, submission errors, and waivers obtained from out-of-state dispensers who dispense less than 15 prescriptions a year (in some other states, it can take up to 4 weeks for information to show on a report. So, knowing details about the other states your requesting from might prove to be helpful when using the state-to-state interconnect hub. The best way to see if your recently written prescription was dispensed or to find out if the patient filled recently is to contact the dispensers directly or discuss this with your patient.

The NDPDMP does not warrant any report to be accurate or complete. The Report is based on the search criteria you entered and the data submitted from the dispensing pharmacy. For more information about any prescription in any NDPDMP report or to verify a prescription, contact the dispenser.
