PDMP Administration

Focus Explore

Prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) collect patient-specific prescription information in centralized databases in an effort to reduce the misuse of controlled medicines. This dataset captures rules governing the administration of state PDMPs, including which department collects and stores the data, how the PDMP program is funded, and program's powers and duties to act under the law.

This is a longitudinal dataset, displaying laws from January 1, 1998 to July 1, 2016.
