    ​​Would love feedback on the below scenario:
    Patient presents to ED for treatment of " altered level of consciousness".  After provider reviewed exams and stated PMH, he reviewed the PDMP (prescription drug monitoring program of Pennsylvania).  The printed PDMP was delivered to medical records.  To be honest, this is the first one that has ever come our way.  Would you include this in the patient's EMR?  The provider does document in his ED note that he referenced the PDMP.  Thanks for your feedback.

    We include a similar document for Kentucky in our records, but access to the document is highly limited – a very slim group of individuals and it is not included in release of records requests as it is a document that belongs to the State. Should someone request a copy, they are directed to the State to obtain it.

    ​I work in a drug and alcohol Level III hospital and we include the PDMP in the record.

    Each states program has different regulations. I would check your state law regarding the Prescription Monitoring Program.  Go to the homepage and see if there is an FAQ.  In Virginia, if the report is placed in the medical record, you must indicate the restrictions on unauthorized disclosures. This link will be helpful to finding your state and connecting to the homepage.
