Prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMP) are relatively new but potentially useful tools to
enhance prudent prescribing of controlled substances. However, little is known about the types of
clinicians who make most use of PDMPs, how they are incorporated into workflow, or how clinicians
and patients respond to the information. This study examined differences between PDMP users and
nonusers and how clinicians in various specialties use PDMPs in practice.
