Opioid prescription tracking data to be shared with nearly all states

June 13, 2019

The Department of Health recently announced that our state’s Prescription Monitoring Program, which is used to track opioid prescriptions, is now sharing data with nearly all states in the U.S. Previously, data was only shared between Washington’s database and three other states, which meant providers had to go through additional hurdles to access information on patients who had been seen elsewhere. This crucial change means providers will now have direct access to information that can stop inappropriate opioid prescribing and help them choose the best treatments for their patients in pain. WSHA has advocated for enhanced multistate data sharing and is excited about the Department’s progress and benefit to providers across the state.
