State House Votes For Prescription Drug Monitoring Database

October 22, 2013

The state House of Representatives on Monday voted in favor of a bill to create a statewide database by which the use and abuse of prescription drugs may be monitored in Pennsylvania.

The measure passed by a 191-to-7 vote.

The bill would require pharmacists to provide information about prescriptions of controlled substances.  Such data would include the names of the prescribing physician and the pharmacist, dosages of the drugs and the sources of payment.

Supporters say the database would help identify abusers, aid law enforcement officials, and pinpoint so-called “doctor shoppers.”
