Information for Prescribers and Pharmacists on Accessing the NJPMP

Access to the New Jersey Prescription Monitoring Program (NJPMP) database at www.NJRxReport.com is granted to prescribers and pharmacists who are licensed by the State of New Jersey and in good standing with their respective licensing boards.

Before issuing a prescription or dispensing a prescribed drug, qualified prescribers and pharmacists who have registered to use the NJPMP, are able to access the NJPMP website and request the CDS and HGH prescription history of the patient. The users must certify that they are seeking information for a specific, current patient.

The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs and its private contractor keep NJPMP patient information strictly confidential, in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy and Security Rules.

Prescribers and pharmacists authorized to access the NJPMP, must certify before each search that they are seeking data solely for the purpose of providing healthcare to current patients. Authorized users agree that they will not provide access to the NJPMP to any other individuals, including members of their staff.

A prescriber or pharmacist who accesses or discloses NJPMP information for any purpose other than providing healthcare to a current patient or verifying the NJPMP’s record of prescriptions issued by the prescriber, or who allows any other individuals to access the NJPMP using the prescriber’s or pharmacist’s own access codes, is subject to civil penalties of up to $10,000 for each offense and disciplinary action by the prescriber’s or pharmacist’s professional licensing board.

Any individual who suspects that another individual or entity has accessed or disclosed patient information in violation of the NJPMP Statute or Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy and Security Rules, should immediately contact the NJPMP Administrator at njpmp@dca.lps.state.nj.us or call the Division of Consumer Affairs at 800-242-5846.
