Prescription Monitoring Program

The Oklahoma Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a valuable tool for practitioners, pharmacists, and law enforcement in the prevention and detection of diversion and abuse of pharmaceutical controlled substances. The PMP is an electronic database that contains information about controlled substance prescriptions dispensed by pharmacists. Currently, OBN administers the only real-time prescription monitoring program in the nation. Oklahoma implemented the web-based PMP in 2006, and Oklahoma lawmakers mandated the use of the PMP system by practitioners in 2015.
