The State of Oregon has established a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (Oregon PDMP) as directed in statute ORS 431.962. Pharmacies that dispense Schedules II, III and IV controlled substances in the state of Oregon or to an address in the state are required to electronically report such dispensing to the Oregon PDMP. Practitioners and pharmacists will have secure 24/7 access to the database to help determine appropriate medical treatment and referral needs.
The Oregon PDMP is operated and maintained by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA). The purpose of the program is to promote public health and welfare and help improve patient care.
Actions Required by Pharmacies
Data upload activities begins on June 1, 2011. Complete instructions for creating your account, logging on to the new Oregon PDMP, and electronically submitting your data files are provided in the RxSentry Uploader’s Implementation Guide located on the left menu bar. Please download theRxSentry Uploader’s Implementation Guide and read this document in its entirety to best understand all aspects of the new system.
Using language provided by the Authority, pharmacies reporting data to the Oregon PDMP must notify each patient receiving a controlled substance about the PDMP before or when the controlled substance is dispensed to the patient. The notification must include that the prescription will be entered into the system. The notification language is located on the left menu bar along with a copy of the Patient Advisory Notice poster and other notice materials.
