About the Vermont Prescription Monitoring System

The purpose of the database is to provide timely and useful information to both licensed prescribers and pharmacists. The VPMS will also help health care providers identify patients who may need treatment for drug abuse or addiction.

Only licensed health care providers and pharmacists, registered with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, and registered with the VPMS or an authorized delegate will have access to information in the database. Individuals can also receive a copy of their own database information upon request from the program office.
