Interstate Data Sharing
NM PMP users can now search selected PMPs in other states.
Here are some important things to know about “interstate” sharing:
- You will need to enter a patient’s full first name, full last name, and date of birth. From here, you can select each state that you are requesting an interstate PMP patient request. Adding additional information will limit your results and/or may cause your request to be delayed.
- Not all states share PMP data. Either by legal, financial or technological restrictions, not all states share PMP data outside of their state boundaries.
- States differ widely on what type of Health Care Professionals from other states they will allow to access PMP. This is related to your Job/Role in the PMP. While Physicians (MD, DO) are almost always allowed, access by Pharmacists, other types of Practitioners and Delegates varies.
- Law Enforcement, Regulatory Boards, etc. do not currently have interstate data sharing access.
