Prescription opioid abuse has become a serious national problem. To respond to the opioid epidemic, states have implemented prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) to monitor and reduce opioid abuse. We conducted a systematic literature review to better understand the PDMP impact on reducing opioid abuse, improving prescriber practices, and how EHR integration has impacted PDMP usability. Lessons learned can help guide federal and state-based efforts to better respond to the opioid crisis.
