How to use the Alaska Prescription Drug Monitoring Program
The Alaska Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (AKPDMP) is Alaska's solution for monitoring Schedule II-IV controlled substances dispensed in Alaska.
This program is designed to improve patient care and foster the goal of reducing misuse, abuse, and diversion of controlled substances; and to encourage cooperation and coordination among state, local, and federal agencies and other states to reduce the misuse, abuse, and diversion of controlled substances.
AS 17.30.200 requires that each dispenser shall submit, by electronic means, information regarding each prescription dispensed for a controlled substance. Each dispenser shall submit the required information to the central repository at least once each week unless the board waives this requirement for good cause shown by the dispensing vendor.
