Does Colorado have a prescription monitoring program?
The Colorado Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) is a powerful tool for prescribers and dispensers to help reduce prescription drug misuse, abuse, and diversion: helping them to make more informed decisions when considering prescribing or dispensing a controlled substance to a patient.
Who can access Pdmp?
Most states allow access to prescribing physicians and their delegates, pharmacists, and law enforcement officers. Some states also allow access to other individuals whose work relates to the PDMP's information. Most states allow physicians to designate one or more delegates, also known as designees.
Is there a national prescription database?
WHEN SHOULD I CHECK THE PDMP? A PDMP is a statewide electronic database that tracks all controlled substance prescriptions. Authorized users can access prescription data such as medications dispensed and doses.
