Iowa’s proposed project to enhance the Iowa Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a partnership among the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) Bureau of Substance Abuse, the Iowa Board of Pharmacy, and the Governor’s Office of Drug Control Policy. Goals include increasing prescriber registration, increasing access and admission to treatment and recovery support, and implementing multisystem planning and program development. Hiring a new part-time data analyst is proposed to provide a liaison between the PMP team and other providers and to conduct analyses.
