Wisconsin ePDMP Public Statistics Dashboard
The Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services maintains the Enhanced Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (ePDMP). This program provides information about controlled substance prescriptions that are dispensed in the state. It allows pharmacies, healthcare professionals, law enforcement agencies, and public health officials to work together to reduce the misuse and abuse of prescribed controlled substance medications. The ePDMP Public Statistics Dashboard provides interactive data visualizations about controlled substance prescriptions dispensed in Wisconsin, law enforcement reports submitted to the ePDMP, and use of the ePDMP by healthcare professionals and others.
