The Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP), a clinical tool that helps physicians keep patients safe, has grown in leaps and bounds in recent years. Illinois physicians with a controlled substance license are now required to register and access the PMP for initial prescriptions of Schedule II narcotics. Many electronic health record systems are now integrated directly into the PMP.
Learn from Sarah Pointer, the Clinical Director of the PMP, about the importance of using the PMP, as well as new developments and improvements.
At the completion of this program, learners should be able to:
- Explain the purpose of Public Act 100-0564
- Describe the provider requirements for accessing and reviewing information in the Illinois Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (ILPMP)
- Explain the information available through the MyPMP analytical tool on the ILPMP website
