The Impact of PDMPs on the Opioid Epidemic

Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs, or PDMPs, are state-based electronic databases, which at their most basic level, help capture information on the prescribing and dispensing of controlled substances. 

If used properly, these systems can serve as powerful tools for states in fighting the opioid epidemic that continues to spread across America each year. 

Our newest eBook, The Ultimate Guide to the PDMP, examines: 

  • PDMPs on a state-by-state level
  • The PMP InterConnect system and its participants 
  • Reduction in doctor shopping and diversion
  • IWP's PDMP process and daily reporting requirements. 

Explore what states have excelled, which states are pending new legislation and what add-on programs help bolster the system.
