Oregon's Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) is a program developed to promote public health and welfare and help improve patient care. The information will aid healthcare providers and pharmacists to better manage patients' prescriptions to improve quality of care. It will also support the appropriate use of prescription drugs.
Data upload procedures began on June 1, 2011. This is when pharmacies were able to create accounts and begin submitting data. Healthcare providers and pharmacists can apply for accounts to access patient information from the PDMP Website.
The data is being collected so that your provider can give you better health care.
The number of deaths related to poisoning in Oregon has increased five-fold since 1990. This increase is mainly due to deaths associated with controlled substance prescription drugs. From 1999 - 2008, more than 1,300 Oregonians died from prescription drug poisonings. For these reasons, Oregon Senate Bill 355 established a PDMP in Oregon when the governor signed the bill into law in July, 2009.
The information includes: the patient’s name, address, phone number, date of birth, sex, pharmacy and prescriber information, and specific prescription information including the drug name and dosage, when it was prescribed, and when it was dispensed. This is only for prescriptions that are classified as controlled substances Schedules II, III and IV and State of Oregon drugs of interest pseudoephedrine, naloxone, and gabapentin.
Currently all 50 states have laws that authorize the establishment and operation of a PDMP. Oregon allows prescribers in bordering states, Washington, California, Idaho, and Nevada, access to the PDMP if they meet licensure criteria. Oregon also allows non-resident pharmacists with licensure from the Oregon Board of Pharmacy to dispense to Oregon access to the system.
Oregon healthcare professionals are able to access some other states PDMP systems including Washington and California. For information on the Washington PDMP please visit: http://www.wapmp.org/practitioner/pharmacist/
