How can a practice sign up for PMP/PDMP?

What is a PMP/PDMP?

Across the country, over 44 states have implemented Prescription Monitoring Programs (PMPs) or Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) to provide physicians and pharmacies with access to a medication history for patients who have/are receiving prescriptions for controlled substances. State PMPs and PDMPs are designed to alert healthcare providers so that they can be more effective in combating opioid addiction and abuse.

PDMP Availability for H2H DigitalRx Prescribers

Beginning this New Year, from Jan 2024, our providers will have access to the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PMP/PDMP). Prior to and following the service launch, correspondence will be sent to each of our EMR/EHR integration partners.

Note: To obtain PDMP access through the H2H Digital Rx Interface, it is recommended that prescribers follow the integration steps outlined below.

If you are already enrolled? You can skip the Step-2 and go with the Step-3.

Visit the PMP/PDMP Integration Customer Connect portal at:
https://connect.bamboohealth.com/

Click Create an Account in the top right-hand corner.

Login and follow the eight step on-screen prompts to provide the required information for your integration request.

 

Please select the following information for Software vendor at Step-3

  • Software vendor – H2H DigitalRx
  • Version – Version 6.3

Sign all necessary agreements at Step-7 within the portal and complete your application.

Upon receipt of your completed application and Bamboo Health PDMP Gateway fee (per prescriber), Bamboo Health will submit your request to the state for final approval.

Upon state approval, credentials will be sent to your organization’s primary contact and/or your EHR/PMS vendor, per their onboarding process.

A confirmation email will be sent to your healthcare organization’s primary point of contact.

Only authorized decision makers should complete a funding application.

The approval process timeline will vary from state to state, but should take a matter of a few weeks in most instances.

Step 3: Receive integration credentials

Once your integration registration has been approved, you will receive your integration credentials in an encrypted email. Please share the integration credentials with your respective H2H Account Manager to enable PDMP in H2H DigitalRx.
