The Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) monitors the prescribing and dispensing of schedule II-IV controlled substances to assist in the identification and prevention of prescription drug misuse and abuse. The program’s goals are to:
Improve controlled substance prescribing by providing critical information regarding a patient’s controlled substance prescription history.
Inform clinical practice by identifying patients at high-risk who would benefit from early interventions.
Reduce the number of people who misuse, abuse or overdose while making sure patients have access to safe, effective treatment.
All users must upload validation documentation before their registration will be processed. See the PDMP Validation Documentation List for information about authorized users and required documentation.
Mass Registration is a free, one-time opportunity that runs now until April 20, 2018, that gives health systems, hospitals, medical groups or healthcare practices the ability to bulk register their healthcare providers in the PDMP.
To sign up for mass registration, complete the following excel sheet with required information from all providers in your practice and send securely to PDMP.DPH@stlouisco.com by April 20, 2018.
