EDvocating for our PDMP Solution is our most important strategic initiative, providing a proactive, standards-based model to help address the national epidemic of prescription opioid abuse. Earlier this month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported the continued rise in opioid overdose deaths in 2015, underscoring the urgent need to take action. NCPDP has been actively engaged in problem solving the challenges associated with the issue since 2012, and recent legislation prompted our PDMP Task Group to update our PDMP white paper.

    Download the latest version of the white paper, which includes a new title to emphasize the patient safety issue, an Executive Summary overview, and updates that address the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) enhancements for PDMPs and recent EDvocacy feedback.
