Prescription Monitoring Program

July 10, 2019

The prescription monitoring program (PMP) is an important tool for physicians and pharmacists to deter some forms of “doctor shopping” for the illegal or inappropriate use of prescription drugs.

TOA worked with lawmakers in the 2019 Texas Legislature to:

  • Secure funding for the Texas State Board of Pharmacy (TSPB) to acquire licenses so that the PMP can be integrated into electronic health records (EHRs).
  • Delay the mandate until March 1, 2020, so that EHRs are prepared.
