The Georgia prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) began accepting applications for registration in May 2013. Prescribers and pharmacists have access to query the data.
The Georgia Composite Medical Board advises that queries are available for viewing only by the user who submitted the query request. If you print the query, protect patient confidentiality by filing or destroying the document after it has been reviewed. The law regarding electronic database prescription information prohibits any person or entity who receives such electronic information or related reports from providing the information or reports to any other person or entity except by order of a court of competent jurisdiction pursuant.
To register for the PDMP, go to http://www.hidinc.com/gapdmp and click the Practitioner / Pharmacist link on the left hand side. Practitioners and pharmacists must perform the steps outlined in the Training Guide link to request an account.
