Map


Prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) collect patient-specific prescription information in centralized databases in an effort to reduce the misuse of controlled medicines. This dataset encompasses laws regulating which professions have access to the database and for what purpose, whether practitioners can delegate their access, whether patients can see their own information, and the extent to which access to individually-identified records may be granted for law enforcement purposes. 

This is a longitudinal dataset, displaying laws from January 1, 1998 to July 1, 2016.
