Training Opportunities Added
Upcoming changes in Medical Marijuana Certificate Process

The Division of Licensing and Regulatory Services (DLRS) within the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will launch a custom online service to allow licensed medical providers to certify patients for the use of medical marijuana on January 5, 2015. The online service will only be available to licensed Maine medical physicians and nurse practitioners in good standing and will produce a standard printed certification for all patients in the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program. Its use is mandatory.

The new system includes several precautions that ensure information privacy and data integrity and conforms to standard health care information security standards, and offers a variety of benefits to patients, physicians and the DLRS. Enhanced security, direct relationship-building between the patient and provider and the immediate issuance of a patient designation card are just a few of the benefits.

Patient information is not captured or stored in this new system. A basic transaction history will be retained for statistical purposes, which include the date, name of the certifying medical provider, the zip code of the patient and whether the patient is over age 18. Medical provider login information and passwords will be encrypted.

The DLRS has established a schedule for online training and added additional training dates and times:

December 19, 3-4 p.m.
December 29, 7:30-8 a.m.
December 29, 6-6:30 p.m.
December 30, 9:30-10 a.m.
December 30, 3-3:30 p.m.

Providers can log onto the training at http://www.readytalk.com (access code: 6212632) at any of the above mentioned times.  For more information, please contact Marietta D’Agostino, Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program Manager, at 287-5810.

Below is the link to the system.  All providers must go to the link to set up an account* and order paper before they can certify a patient to use Medical Marijuana.  This process must be completed by Monday December 22, 2014.
