The U.S. is in the grips of an opioid epidemic. In response, the Washington Legislature passed HB 2730 to help reduce opioid overprescribing, and therefore addiction and overdose, by enhancing the state’s Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP). Join the Washington State Department of Health, Washington State Medical Association and WSHA for a webcast from 1-2pm on Friday, June 10 to learn more about the opioid epidemic, HB 2730, the implementation process, the timeline and future policy options to address the opioid epidemic.
Washington State’s PMP is an effective tool for improving patient care and reducing opioid abuse. HB 2730 expands access to the PMP to an additional 14,000 licensed providers and streamlines the registration process, making it easier for hospitals, health system-based providers and clinics to access prescription data. It also removes logistical barriers that have prevented providers from fully utilizing the PMP in the past. (Ian Corbridge)
