TTAC at Brandeis University Publishes New Report on PDMP Best Practice Checklist 

Mar 2017

The PDMP TTAC at Brandeis University has posted an item about a new report highlighting best practices for prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs). These programs are now operational in Guam, the District of Columbia, and all states but Missouri, and established but not yet operational in St. Louis County. Over the past decade, with support from Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and other federal grants, many PDMPs have enhanced their programs to make prescription data more accurate, timely, relevant, and accessible. During this process a number of best and promising practices have been identified, and continue to be identified, many of which PDMPs have adopted to optimize operations and increase their impact.

This report documents the development of the PDMP best practice checklist, a tool for tracking the adoption of practices over time by PDMPs, both individually and collectively. It also describes findings on the adoption of practices from the first comprehensive assessment of PDMPs to include most of the checklist items, carried out in 2016. This provides a baseline snapshot of the extent of states’ implementation of practices from which progress in optimizing PDMPs can be measured by future assessments. States can also use the checklist as a self-assessment tool when planning further enhancements. The checklist itself will undergo modification as promising PDMP practices continue to be discovered, developed and evaluated.
