Who Monitors Prescriptions

Print More

Oklahoma’s online Prescription Monitoring System is checked most often by physicians, followed by pharmacists and enforcement or regulatory agencies, according to 2013 data. Pharmacists are not required to run “doctor-shopping” checks but have authority to do so. Last, year, 15,828 medical professionals were registered to use the PMP.
