Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) Mass Registration

Copy of Age Specific Death Rates for Opioid Overdoses in Clay County

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. To assist providers across the metro area to participate in the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, Clay County subscribes to the software PMP Aware.

PMP Aware is able to provide valuable information to providers concerning a patients’ controlled substance prescription history. Currently, providers may register for access individually. However, in order to increase the number of providers using PMP Aware, the software provider for the PDMP is offering a one-time opportunity to mass register multiple providers at once. In March, office managers, the credentialing department or an appropriate designee can submit registration information for multiple providers at once.

This is an incredible opportunity for providers in the Kansas City area to help prevent further opioid misuse and death during the current epidemic. The Kansas City metro area has a higher than average drug overdose death rate compared to the national average at 14.4 people per 100,000. Providers signed up through mass registration will be processed in April with users receiving the login and access in June. More information for healthcare workers about the mass registration process is here.
