Wisconsin Receives $2 Million Grant for Prescription Drug Monitoring Program.

The Wisconsin Enhanced Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (ePDMP) will receive $1,945,652 from a competitive U.S. Department of Justice grant program. The ePDMP is an award-winning tool that promotes responsible opioid prescribing and generates statewide prescribing data. The Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services and the Controlled Substances Board will use the funding for overall infrastructure enhancements that will increase security, user satisfaction, and adoption. Hospitalizations for opioid overdoses are up this year, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, and experts believe COVID-related isolation and stress are at least partly to blame.
