Leo Beletsky is a Northeastern University law professor who conducted a small study of Reddit users’ experiences with PDMPs. “In the Reddit posts, the picture that comes out is, once you’re rebuked by a provider based on PDMP data, that influences how patients decide to seek help or not seek help,” Beletsky says. “The collateral harm from that is you’re cutting people out of the health care system at a time when they’re most vulnerable.”
