California Board of Pharmacy Re-awaken:  'via Blog this'

If you're following the evolution of California e-Pedigree, then you'll want to read this analysis by Dirk Rodgers.

The key takeaway for me is, Board of Pharmacy guidance is needed before folks can plan and act:
". . . the Board needs to provide some guidance on, but there are some other very important questions that need to be answered before companies are likely to fully invest in pedigree solutions.  Here I’m referring to both solution providers and companies within the supply chain."

Hello!  Doctors in Florida bought 89 percent of all the Oxycodone sold in the country last year. There's current thinking that the illegal sale of prescription drugs, and Oxycodone in particular, boomed in Florida because of the absence of a widely used prescription drug monitoring system and lax state regulations

In a nutshell:
The roughly 4,000 pharmacies permitted in Florida will be required to participate in the new database and monitoring program. So anytime a prescription is dispensed for controlled substances, the doctor and the patient's name will be entered into Florida's database
