The Utility of a Prescription Monitoring Program in Death Investigation: The Virginia Experience

Amy M. Tharp-Myers, Kathrin Hobron, Ralph Orr

ABSTRACT:  The Virginia Prescription Monitoring Program (VPMP) has been in effect since 2002, providing reports for prescribers, pharmacists, and other stakeholders in the growing opioid epidemic. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is one such stakeholder and has found great efficacy in the program in investigating suspected drug-related deaths. This review examines the origins of the VPMP, its benefits, and limitations for use during death investigation.
