PMP Password Policy Change; New SAMHS Director Attends Annual Session
In response to the expression of concerns from physicians, the Maine Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) has modified its requirements for password changes by its users, moving from a 3-month time limit to 6 months.
Gordon Smith, Esq., Maine's Director of Opioid Response, announced today that the change will take place in the next few days. Users of the PMP will no longer have to change their passwords every three months. Instead, those changes (which are necessary to maintain the safety and integrity of the system) will only be required every six months.
This is one of several changes that will be put into place in the coming weeks. At this weekend's MMA Annual Session, the Governor introduced the new Director of Maine's Office of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHS), Jessica Pollard, Ph.D. Director Pollard will begin her new duties on September 30th, but we were all pleased that she was able to come to Bar Harbor and meet MMA members. Her presence underlines the emphasis the DHHS is placing on working with physicians and other members of the health care community for the advancement of public health throughout Maine.< Previous Article | Next Article >
