Prescription Monitoring Program

Virginia’s Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a near “real-time” central database containing information used primarily by healthcare providers to better inform treatment and dispensing decisions. The database contains information on dispensed controlled substances as well as naloxone and registered cannabis products. PMP data is used to track trends in drug utilization, measure the impact of policy (legislative) actions, and support activities related to the opioid crisis response in the Commonwealth. The PMP also provides information to authorized law enforcement agents and regulatory personnel to assist with criminal or licensee investigations.

Grant Funding Available to Integrate the PMP into Your Clinical Workflow

Grant funding is available for integration of prescription information into electronic medical records and pharmacy software systems. 

Virginia’s Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a 24/7 database containing information on dispensed controlled substances included in Schedule II, III and IV; those in Schedule V for which a prescription is required; naloxone, all drugs of concern, and cannabis products dispensed by a pharmaceutical processor in Virginia or their dispensaries. The primary purpose of the PMP is to promote safe prescribing and dispensing practices for covered substances by providing timely and essential information to healthcare providers. Law enforcement and health profession licensing boards use the PMP to support investigations related to doctor shopping, diversion, and inappropriate prescribing and dispensing.

For more detailed information about this important initiative, please review the Virginia PMP Welcome Packet.
