PMP Prescriber Education Sessions

New education coming early 2021!

The MN PMP staff is happy to provide a four part education package for healthcare providers. In December 2018 our PMP data and accounts migrated from our previous software system (RxSentry®) to the PMP AWARxE® system with NarxCare®. This education was developed in an effort to provide healthcare providers a better understanding of the prescription monitoring program as well as the functionalities of your new PMP software system. Sessions begin with an overview of the program itself including information needed for licensees to comply with Minnesota legislative requirements. Sessions finish with data scientists explaining the analytics applied to the data to create the final graphs, summaries, and risk scores that account holders view MN PMP data in.
