PMP Data Uploaders

MN PMP UPDATE: The Minnesota Prescription Monitoring Program will be migrating to Appriss PMP AWARxE

Effective December 4, 2018, the Minnesota Prescription Monitoring Program (MN PMP) will be upgrading to a new software to support prescription monitoring services. We will be moving to the Appriss PMP AWARxE software. The AWARxE Clearinghouse Data Submitter Guide explains the process to register and transmit data to the Appriss PMP Clearinghouse. The Appriss PMP Clearinghouse is for data submission only.

Important dates to remember:

  1. November 1, 2018: Appriss Clearinghouse registration available
  2. December 3, 2018: Last day to send data to the existing system
  3. December 4, 2018: All reporting must go through the new system

Important note:

Please review the ASAP specifications in the linked AWARxE Clearinghouse Data Submitter Guide as important updates will be occurring to the following fields once migration to AWARxE occurs: PHA02, PHA05 through PHA09, PAT17, PAT21, and DSP12.

Note for existing users of PMP Clearinghouse: If you are currently registered with the Appriss PMP Clearinghouse system as a Data Submitter for another state, you will not need to register for a new account. Instructions to add Minnesota to your list of states for record submission are in the AWARxE Clearinghouse Data Submitter Guide.

NEW: AWARxE Clearinghouse Data Submitter Guide (pdf) effective 12/4/2018


Dispensers (pharmacies) licensed by the MN Board of Pharmacy must report daily, all Minnesota schedule II-V controlled substances, butalbital and gabapentin prescriptions.  If no controlled substance, butalbital or gabapentin prescriptions are dispensed on any given day, the dispenser is required to submit a "zero report" at the end of the day or on the following day. If the pharmacy does not have a way to automate zero reporting and is closed for business, it is permissible to submit one zero report per day closed, upon reopening for business. Submitting zero reports for a timeframe greater than one day is not permitted. 

Pharmacies are required by law to report valid prescription information to the PMP. Prescription records containing errors must be resolved in the PMP database within seven days of the initial erroneous submission. Prescription error(s) in the pharmacy's upload are located on the pharmacy's Edit Report. Edit Reports are sent to the pharmacy or their uploader (i.e. software vendor, corporate uploader, etc.) as specified in the pharmacy's uploader account. Failure to correct prescription errors within seven days may result in a referral to the Board of Pharmacy's Complaint Review Panel for further action.
