Funding Options for Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs

To help Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) identify funding options which may assist them in remaining operational and fulfill their purpose in a time of shrinking state budgets, BJA's PDMP Training and Technical Assistance Center, operated by Brandeis University, has developed a guide to inform PDMP administrators, policymakers, legislative representatives, and other interested stakeholders about funding mechanisms currently in use across the country. The guide also suggests other funding possibilities a PDMP may wish to consider to ensure sustainability and program enhancement.


Useful Resources
See the following BJA resources:

Guidance
BJA has released Guidance for Harold Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) Grantees on Responding to Performance Measures, which offers common definitions and guidance related to the performance metrics questions.

PDMP Evaluation
In partnership with BJA, Simeone Associates released An Evaluation of Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs, which examines the effects of such programs on the supply and abuse of prescription drugs. At the time of the study, 20 states had implemented and 23 states were in the process or designing or planning systems to monitor the prescription and sale of drugs identified as controlled substances by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. See the Executive Summary.

Interstate Data Sharing Becomes a Reality for Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs
BJA is pleased to announce that the Kentucky and Ohio Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) have officially launched the electronic Prescription Monitoring Information Exchange (PMIX). The goal of PMIX is to help states implement a cost effective technology solution to facilitate interstate data sharing between PDMPs and has been made possible through funding from BJA's Harold Rogers Prescription Monitoring Program. Read the full announcement.

Eligibility
Applicants are limited to the 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa with legislation or regulations, either pending or in place, that (1) require the submission of dispensing data to a centralized database and (2) authorize or designate a state agency to implement and administer the program. State governments that want to improve an existing prescription drug monitoring program may apply for an enhancement award. States that want to apply for a planning grant do not need to have legislation or a regulation in place or pending.

Technical assistance for the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program is provided by Brandeis University and the Alliance of States with Prescription Monitoring Programs. Assistance is offered on all aspects of planning, implementing or enhancing state programs. For technical assistance, contact the Training and Technical Assistance Center at 360-556-7152.

BJA also provides funding to several other partners to support PDMP-related projects.

  • The National Alliance for Model State Drug Laws provides states with necessary legislative and policy resources.
  • The IJIS Institute is currently working with BJA on a project related to information sharing between PDMPs. Phase I of the project involved defining the prescription monitoring information exchange (PMIX) specifications to guide the implementation of systems that exchange data between states. For Phase II, IJIS implemented a pilot test between two states for exchanging PDMP data. Based on the success of Phase II, work is now beginning on Phase III which will involve utilizing a hub server to centrally facilitate and broker PMIX exchanges.
  • In FY 2006, BJA awarded a grant to the National Conference of State Legislators to educate state legislators and key legislative staff on the policy issues associated with PDMPs.
  • In FY 2006, BJA also awarded a grant to the Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) National Office to develop resources to strengthen the linkages between state PDMPs and state addiction treatment agencies.
