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.

Recommendations for full use of PDMP include:

  • PDMPs can be effective clinical tools in medication management involving controlled substances.
  • PDMPs should be available for clinicians across state boundaries.
  • Every prescribing clinician should be familiar with the process of accessing and utilizing information from PDMP’s so that they can incorporate this information in their practices.
