With this newly instituted mandate, we found that many of the resident did not have access to the PDMP query site. Our initial goal is to have 100% of residents have log-in access to the PDMP site. Our long-term goals involve increasing the query of the PDMP website by OB-GYN residents prior to prescribing narcotic pain medication.
There are several changes that we can make to result in improvement of our initial goal including: identifying residents that require access, working with program coordinator to identify gaps in their PDMP application, and assisting in providing DOH with any additional documentation necessary for access.
We will measure our improvement with a survey of residents as to their ability to access the PDMP website prior to our intervention and afterwards. After the intervention we wish to survey the residents on their use and utilization of the Pennsylvania Department of Health Drug Prescription Drug Monitoring Program
