PMP - Change in reporting frequency effective May 16, 2018
Effective May 16, 2018, dispensers will be required to report to the Iowa Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) no later than the next business day following dispensing pursuant to 657 Iowa Administrative Code subrule 37.3(3). The Board adopted the change at its March 14, 2018 regular meeting. The change in reporting frequency will provide providers and pharmacists more timely information when utilizing this data in their prescribing and dispensing decision making. Questions about this change to reporting frequency can be directed to a PMP administrator, Jennifer Tiffany at 515-242-5139 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Board encourages all dispensers to update their systems to implement next business day reporting as soon as reasonably possible, but no later than May 16, 2018.
