Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP)
A PDMP is a statewide electronic database that tracks all controlled substance prescriptions. Authorized users can access prescription data such as medications dispensed and doses.
PDMPs improve patient safety by allowing clinicians to:
• Identify patients who are obtaining opioids from multiple providers.
• Calculate the total amount of opioids prescribed per day (in MME/day).
• Identify patients who are being prescribed other substances that may increase risk of opioids—such as benzodiazepines.
