MPDR Integration Information

MPDR Integration Information

What is MPDR Integration with Health Information Systems (HIS)?
Integrating access to MPDR data within an HIS (i.e. electronic health record or pharmacy management system) provides a streamlined clinical workflow for MPDR Registered Users. It essentially allows for one click access to MPDR patient medication histories inside the Registered User's HIS. 
Please note: Delegates are not able to access the MPDR via HIS integration. Delegates will continue to access MPDR data through the MT PMP AWARxE web portal at
How does integration work?
The MPDR vendor provides integration utilizing a service called PMP Gateway. PMP Gateway facilitates communication, information transfer, integration development with HIS and support for the state approval process. There are key functional differences between the MT PMP AWARxE web portal and HIS integration as the goal for integration is to provide key data elements to providers in a stream-lined workflow.
Please review the MPDR Gateway Integration Guide for more detailed information. 
Please note: Not all HIS vendors are currently integrated. If your vendor is not integrated, please submit an integration request form and Bamboo Health will work with your vendor to facilitate the development.
How do I begin integration with the MPDR?
Please note: Only authorized decision makers should complete the request and documents.
Visit the Customer Connect portal at:
  • Click Create an Account in the top righthand corner.
  • Login and follow the on-screen prompts to provide the needed information for your integration request.
  • Sign all necessary agreements within the portal and complete your application. This includes an End User License Agreement (EULA).
Upon receipt of your completed application, Bamboo Health will submit your request to the state for review and final approval. Upon state approval, credentials will be sent to your organization’s primary contact and/or your HIS vendor, per their onboarding process. A confirmation email will be sent to your healthcare organization’s primary point of contact.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I still need to register for an MPDR account at if my HIS is integrated?
Yes. Any prescriber or pharmacist will still need to have an active account with the MPDR in order to view patient medication histories through integration. If you do not have an MPDR account, you will not be able to access the MPDR through your HIS.  

Why can’t delegates access the MPDR through integration?
Integration streamlines the patient medication query process so prescribers and pharmacists do not have to delegate their search authority to an authorized agent. Prescribers and pharmacists can directly view a patient medication history during their clinical workflow.  

What if I use a vendor that hasn’t integrated with the PMP Gateway program?
We can work with your vendor to develop a connection to the PMP Gateway software. Please submit the Integration request form to start the process.
