Effective May 16, 2018, dispensers will be required to report to the Iowa Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) no later than the next business day following dispensing pursuant to 657 Iowa Administrative Code subrule 37.3(3). The Board adopted the change at its March 14, 2018 regular meeting. The change in reporting frequency will provide providers and pharmacists more timely information when utilizing this data in their prescribing and dispensing decision making. Questions about this change to reporting frequency can be directed to a PMP administrator. At this time, if your pharmacy has not already converted to next business day reporting, you need to be preparing for such conversion to be ready by May 16, 2018. Failure to comply with next business day reporting as of May 16 may be grounds for formal disciplinary action.
