Closed:
Solicitation

The Harold Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) enhances the capacity of regulatory and law enforcement agencies and public health officials to collect and analyze controlled substance prescription data and other scheduled chemical products through a centralized database administered by an authorized agency.

PDMPs help state and local governments to detect and prevent the diversion and abuse of pharmaceutically controlled substances such as opioids and other prescription drugs.

The Harold Rogers PDMP strengthens states’ and territories’ ability to plan, implement, or enhance PDMPs by accommodating local decision-making based on state laws and preferences, while encouraging the replication of promising practices. In addition to supporting the implementation and enhancement of PDMPs, the program can support the Administration’s priority of tracking prescribing across providers and states through the integration of PDMPs and Electronic Health Records and Health Information Exchanges which are essential to promoting safe and responsible prescribing, while also assuring appropriate pain care.

Grant funds may be used to support a variety of PDMP implementation or enhancement activities that encourage the use of PDMPs to improve clinical decisionmaking and prevent the abuse and diversion of controlled substance.
