    Washington State Prescription Monitoring Program

    The Prescription Monitoring Program (Prescription Review) is a patient safety tool. Practitioners will have access to the information before they prescribe or dispense drugs. The information provided allows a practitioner to look for duplicate prescribing, misuse, drug interactions, and other potential concerns. By having this information available before prescribing or dispensing, a practitioner can provide improved care to their patients.

    On October 7, 2011 dispensers began submitting data for the program on Schedules II, III, IV and V controlled substances dispensed to patients. The protected health information will be collected and stored securely.
    As of May 2012 all user groups outlined in our law and rules can request patient prescription information.
    For more information, browse this website or contact the PMP staff.
