Dr. Murphy reported to the board that both clinic sites see roughly 100 to 120 patients per day and checks the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program database (PDMP) 20-30 times each day.

However, the board points to information from the database, which is starkly different. During the period between January and April 15, 2015, “PDMP records reflect that Dr. Murphy or his office accessed the PDMP site 190 times on 7,000 patients visits. Thus, with an average of 91 patients per day, the PDMP was checked less than five times per day.”

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

PDMP Center of Excellence at Brandeis University, February 2014 Briefing

Doctors (and other clinicians) need to know what prescriptions have been given to their patients by other practitioners. This information should be included in the patients’ electronic health care records accessible through a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) that provides immediate information.
