Registration is now open for the new Wisconsin Enhanced Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (ePDMP), being launched today by the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS).
2015 Act 266 requires physicians and other prescribers to check patient information from the ePDMP before issuing a prescription for any controlled substance beginning April 1, 2017. (More information, including exceptions to the requirement to consult the ePDMP, is in this nonpartisan Legislative Council memo.)
According to an e-mail sent to all prescribers on Friday by the DSPS, in order to use the new ePDMP, you will need to register with the new site (pdmp.wi.gov) even if you are registered with and use the previous system. That system will no longer be available and your current login WILL NOT work in the new system. To register, you will need to enter the following information:
- Your last name.
- The last four digits of your SSN.
- Your license number.
- Your license type (profession).
- Your specialty or primary area of practice.
- Your DEA number.
The ePDMP supports current browsers and two previous versions, except it only supports the current and previous version of Internet Explorer. If you experience issues, DSPS suggests that you update your browser.
As soon as you have completed the registration process, you can begin using the new system to look up patients and manage delegates. The multistate search function will be available to both prescribers and their delegates as soon as their accounts are established.
Training materials, including brief tutorial videos and information about creating and maintaining delegates are available at pdmp.wi.gov.
