Reminder: The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (CT DCP) has information about the new e-prescribing requirement for controlled substances, which takes effect January 1, 2018.
In addition to improving efficiency, the Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) will help stop prescription fraud with fewer opportunities to duplicate or modify paper prescriptions.

The purpose of the Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS) is to present a complete picture of a patient’s controlled substance use, including prescriptions by other providers, so that the provider can properly manage the patient’s treatment, including the referral of a patient to services offering treatment for drug abuse or addiction when appropriate.
The CMPRS collects prescription data for Schedule II through Schedule V drugs into a central database, which can then be used by providers and pharmacists in the active treatment of their patients. PMP: Better Data, Better Care (PDF)
Under Connecticut law, information about all transactions for controlled substances (Schedule II-V) dispensed in Connecticut must be reported to the CPMRS. Pharmacies –- both in and out of state –- and dispensing practitioners must submit data at least once per week. The data is then cleaned if needed, and added to a relational database.
- All prescribers in possession of a Connecticut Controlled Substance Registration issued by the State of Connecticut, Department of Consumer Protection, will be required to register as a user with the Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS) at https://connecticut.pmpaware.net/login.
