Here is an example of the Board of Medical Examiners using PDMP history in the complaint process resulting in the practice shutting down. The record of PDMP checks is there, and a few states are starting to look at their mandated use requirements and the gaps between prescriptions written and PDMP checks done.

This transactional history is part of the state PDMP and can be used now or much later to support complaints.

 

How do you show your compliance to mandated use?

 

The use of PDMPs…is helping to reduce misuse of prescription drugs.

PDMP Center of Excellence at Brandeis University, February 2014 Briefing

In 2012, both New York and Tennessee required prescribers to check their state’s PDMP before prescribing painkillers.

The results one year later:
New York realized a 75% drop and Tennessee a 36% drop in patients who were seeing multiple prescribers to obtain the same drugs.
