St. Louis County will participate in the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy's (NABP) prescription monitoring program (PMP) data sharing system, NABP PMP InterConnect. "We are pleased that St. Louis County is joining our nationally-reaching PMP InterConnect system," said NABP President Jeanne Waggener. "Even more physicians and pharmacists will have prescription histories at their fingertips, and that type of secure data sharing will allow them to make more informed medical decisions that help combat the abuse of prescription drugs." Once St. Louis County PMP becomes live in PMP InterConnect, it will join a network of 42 state PMPs exchanging data securely. Missouri is the only state not tracking prescription drug use through a PMP in the United States.
