Prescription Monitoring Program

Local providers are required by the state to use the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) which keeps track of patients and what medicines they’re being prescribed. This program helps to prevent over prescribing and what’s known as “doctor shopping.” RVHCC provides technical assistance to doctor’s offices, dental offices, and pharmacies who use the PMP.
