NEIGHBORHOODS AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Presenters on behalf of this Ordinance are Councilman Scott Wagner, and Dr. Sarah Martin-Anderson, Health Department. Opiod deaths in the Kansas City region have increased 400% in the last 10 years. Missouri is currently the only state in the nation (including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam) without a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP). A PDMP provides an important tool for physicians to gain access to a patient's prescription history, in order to deter potential substance use disorder and avoid fatal drug interaction. Recently, St. Louis county, the city of St. Louis and Jackson County have all passed legislation establishing regional PDMP's. This ordinance would allow Kansas City to partner with these jurisdicition and join the PDMP system.
