Data SourceTexas Prescription Monitoring Program
The Texas Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is an electronic database that collects and monitors outpatient prescription data for Schedule II, III, IV, and V controlled substances dispensed by pharmacies in Texas, or to a Texas resident by a pharmacy in another state. All PMP data for controlled substances records are required to be reported to the Texas PMP within one business day of prescription fill.
Morphine Milligram Equivalents (MME) - Morphine milligram equivalents is a unit of measurement used to standardize and compare the potency of different opioids. It represents the equivalent amount of morphine in milligrams that provides the same pain-relieving effect as a specific dose of another opioid when used as prescribed. Converting opioid doses into MME helps healthcare professionals understand and manage opioid dosing, monitor for overdose risks, and ensure appropriate pain management by accounting for differences in opioid type and strength.
Rate - The frequency or occurrence of a particular outcome over a defined period among a specific group. In this case, the rate is the number of prescriptions dispensed among the population size of Texas for that given year of data.
