Prescription monitoring program


Maine's Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a tool created to prevent and detect prescription drug misuse and diversion, as well as enable a better coordination of care. The program maintains a database of all transactions for schedule II, III and IV controlled substances dispensed in the s. The database is available online to prescribers and dispensers for free. Anyone with a DEA number is encouraged to register to request patient reports. These patient reports, and the automatically sent threshold reports, enhance the ability of health care providers to coordinate care. Clinicians can use the program to check the history of a new patient and to monitor ongoing treatment. For more information, go to http://go.usa.gov/DnVe
