Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs

AAEM encourages prescriber and pharmacist access to prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs), which can be a useful tool to identify possible prescription drug abuse. AAEM supports the interstate data sharing between state PDMPs and calls for standardization between states and the eventual creation of a federal PDMP. PDMPs should report prescriptions in real-time and be integrated into electronic medical records. AAEM opposes mandatory access of PDMP profiles for emergency physicians, which may create unnecessary delays in care.
