Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP)

CRISP is Maryland’s Statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE).  An HIE is the technology that supports the flow of health information among physician practices, hospital labs, radiology centers, and other health care institutions.  HIE allows delivery of the right health information to the right place at the right time, providing safer, more timely, efficient, patient-centered care.

CRISP offers many services to physicians including the following:

  • Encounter Notification System (ENS) – Keeping You Connected to Your Patients - CRISP is now offering a service which enables physicians to receive real-time alerts when a patient is hospitalized.  The service is offered in partnership with all Maryland hospitals at no cost to ambulatory providers.
  • Connect to the CRISP Portal - Connect.  Share.  Improve Patient Care.
  • CRISP Direct Messaging - CRISP DIRECT Messaging is a secure and encrypted email service that supports electronic communication between physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare providers.
  • Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) – The PDMP monitors the prescribing and dispensing of drugs that contain controlled dangerous substances (CDS).

Introducing the Updated PDMP Tab!

To improve performance and availability, we are removing PDMP data from the summary results page of the Clinical Query Portal and making the information exclusively accessible via the new “PDMP” tab. This tab will summarize data from Maryland and other states that have agreed to share information with the state. 

Please do not be alarmed when you are no longer able to locate the "Medications" section on the summary results page. Simply click the "PDMP" tab at the top of the screen to find all PDMP patient medication data.

Please contact MedChi Network Services for assistance with signing up for any of the FREE CRISP Services for Physicians.
