  • Latest Tool In The Fight Against Prescription Drug Abuse

    Car accidents are no longer the leading cause of accidental deaths in the United States. According to a recent report published by the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics, this dubious distinction now belongs to drug poisoning. What's at the root of this trend? A river of prescription painkillers.

    Indeed, the report suggests that the United States is in the midst of a painkiller epidemic. Every year, more people now die from analgesic pain relievers, such as OxyContin and Vicodin, than cocaine and heroin combined. Abuse is so bad these days that doctors are having difficulty keeping up with the demand.

    And if the latest statistics are to be believed, it's a problem that's likely to get worse before it's fully acknowledged as a widespread problem.

    The Harold Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program was designed to enhance the capacity of regulatory and law enforcement agencies to collect and analyze controlled substance prescription data. To be eligible for grant funds, states must have in place an enabling statute or regulation "that requires submission of controlled substance prescription data to a centralized database administered by an authorized state agency." States need a prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) that allows them to rapidly and efficiently collect prescription data from dispensers throughout the state and analyze this data to detect abuse.

    Future Harold Rogers Grants will require that the proposed Prescription Management Program employs the ASAP4.2 format. We are already offering this format, with the option of up to REAL TIME reporting.
