Uses and Use Restrictions
The Harold Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) allows for states? discretion as they plan, implement, or enhance a PDMP to accommodate local decision-making based on state laws and preferences, while encouraging the replication of promising practices.
In FY 2012, the program expanded to provide funding to federally recognized Indian tribal governments for the specific purpose of enabling tribal health care providers to provide data to and access data contained within state PDMPs.
In FY 2013, the program expanded again to enable applications for data-driven, multidisciplinary approaches to reducing prescription drug abuse, encouraging greater utilization of the PDMPs and their data.
In FY 2015 the program added a fourth funding category to promote practitioner and researcher partnerships and contribute to the larger body of knowledge on PDMP best practices. Grant funds under this program can be used to: ? Build a state-level data collection and analysis system to enhance the capacity of regulatory and law enforcement agencies and public health officials for future prevention efforts.
? Enhance existing programs? abilities to analyze and use collected data to identify drug abuse trends, identify and address sources of diversion, and increase the number of users of the PDMP. ? Promote the use of data from the PDMP and other sources to measure drug abuse trends, identify and address sources of diversion, and better inform decision making by prescribers and dispensers. ? Facilitate and participate in national evaluation efforts to assess efficiency and effectiveness of potential best practices.
? Encourage and implement the exchange of information under the PMIX Architecture among states to prevent cross-border diversion. ? Contribute to state level opioid abuse prevention plans and determine methodologies to encourage replication of strategies that are proven to be effective. ? Assess the efficiency and effectiveness of state-level programs to make improvements and encourage additional states to implement programs.
? Enhance collaborations with law enforcement, prosecutors, treatment professionals, the medical community, pharmacies, and regulatory boards to establish a comprehensive PDMP strategy.
? Enable federally recognized Indian tribal governments to establish the policy, legal, and technological infrastructure to share PDMP data from health care facilities with the appropriate state PDMP. ? Establish multidisciplinary action groups consisting of county, state, and federal criminal justice professionals; state and local health authorities; and treatment providers to determine best practices for sharing data, regulatory schemes, deconfliction strategies, intelligence gathering, targeted regulatory and enforcement activity, and prioritization of treatment and prevention efforts for at-risk individuals and communities.

“TEO” and co-founder of Honest Tea, Seth Goldman, talks about living in a shade of grey – businesses wouldn’t exist without its consumers. As he said, “There are current issues we deal with, and even if we solve one of those issues, we should be moving on to the next one. As long as we are a consumer-based economy, there’s no way around it. No way to totally lose that area of grey.”
