I had a another question...our medical records. Are all our drug presripts kept in one centeralized database for all pharmacy, doctors, or whoever to view....or has technology not gotten that far. Just curious if medications in the past disappear after a certian period of time. Thanks Everyone! Smiler

IMO I think it is very state centralized, meaning each state is different on how they collect information. Some states are much more stricter than others. I do not know of any official federal system collecting and pooling all the information together.
Maybe someone here can shed some more light on the situation I am interested myself.
Good Question.
My best,
Mojo

YOU ARE RIGHT MOJO. I LIVE IN TX. HAVE USED THE SAME PHARM. FOR YEARS. WE HAVE TO SIGN A PRIVACY ACT TO PROTECT OUR INFO. FOR ANYONE TO ACCESS OUR INFO THEY MUST HAVE A FORMAL SIGNED RELEASE. DEA INCLUDED.

MY PHARMACIST SAYS NO SUCH AGREEMENT EXISTS BETWEEN THEM AND THE DEA. THE DEA CAN AT ANYTIME CHECK THEIR FLOW OF INVENTORY(IE:BOUGHT-SOLD-ON HAND) BUT FOR ANY PERSONAL PT. INFO REQUIRES A VERY SPECIFIC WARRANT FOR PERSONAL RECORDS(IE: STOLEN OR FORGED SCRIPTS) IF A PHARM. SUSPECTS THIS HE CAN FILE A REPORT OR CALL LAW ENFORCEMENT WITH OR W/O DEA INVOLVEMENT. HE SAID THAT HE WOULD CALL THE DR. AND SIMPLY ASK IF HE HAD A PAD MISSING,SUSPICIOUS EMPS ,,ETC. W/NO PERSONAL INFO REVEALED.

HE SAID THIS HAD NOT OCCURRED IN HIS 20 YEARS AS A PHARM.

THE PRIVACY ACT ALLOWS ONLY 3 PLACES TO HAVE YOUR INFO, LEGALLY- YOU, THE DR.. AND THE PHARM,. THAT FILLED IT. PERIOD!.
BLESSED BE!

Personally, I think (strongly) that each state should have it's OWN accountability system, this system would be based on an ad hoc committee of Pharmacist, Doctors, Pharmaceuticals and nurses,
They can "brainstorm" identify, "needs" potentials for abuse, only medical professionals can create a sensible, credible, system of policy. (Look at our Governments track record) Once the new policy is compiled, and ready for review, (And hopefully submitted heads of state and our choice to accept or not
would be done by popular vote. Furthermore, there must be an on-going advisory board to meet monthly, review data, discuss "Tagged" documentation, and ensure that their is complete compliance to the STATE policy, in the initial meeting, I would agree to have 2-3 DEA officials, but their comments must only be withen the context of "Diversion" and they would not be able to submit officially to the policy being developed.(Although their objections could be taken under consideration by the committe)

I'm sure it will come time where we see that every medication we are prescripted is documented in a database on a national level....this way people don't doctor shop or go to different pharmacies to shop for their drugs (for abuse reason). I can see that down the road, but not for a long time.

All of this record-keeping is taking us down the wrong path. The next step will be scanning our ID's to buy a bottle of Scotch. And, since America is over weight, McDonalds will be next.

We are adults, capable of making our own decisions without the assistance of our government.

I would happily volunteer my time and resources to get the other train moving to stop this madness.

Absolutely right Manny, on the positive side, I talk to young folks all the time, many of them are much brighter and wiser than we give them credit for, and I will say, many of them are mad as heck and I think we are going to see a lot of protesting very soon, I sure hope so, because there is no way our government even remotely comes close to the government, "For the people, and by the people" it's up to all of us, young or old to protest what is going on.
Mr.McBushHitler has done nothing but further alienate us from countries that were once our allies, our borders are increasing being sealed like the Berlin wall,and we are being held hostage by our own government it is pathetic, it is disgusting, and it needs to change.

I strongly believe it isn't going to matter who gets elected, our government is run by lobbiests and special interest groups. The president if basically a lame duck figurehead. The DEA, CIA, FBI, etc. is a seperate entity with a life of their own and no one will be able to stop them. They are to strong. With more and more people wanting the government to run everything we will have no liberties left anymore. We will be totally dependent upon our government, hell we almost are now.

Oh and the reason I said that about the CIA is because I know someone that is in that "organization" and I asked one time who they are accountable to. I just got a look and a laugh.

Sorry, I am in an end of the work day mood. So now we are going to turn our entire health care over to it? Now I am big on civil liberties and it bothers me the way things are being chisled away. But it never ceases to fascinate me how some politicians can get their panties in a bundle over our government intercepting email messages between 2 people located in foreign countries whose exchange happens to go through this country, but don't bat an eye about our government owning our health records when we turn them over for national health care. Just seems odd. And we are about to let it happen. No, I will predict it will happen within the next two years. And it won't be Adolf Bush or Admiral McCain who will do it. You might say I am in a cranky mood. Sorry. Carry on

Yes soon our medical records will be part of the government monster. Our phone and emails are already along with our financial information, home and land ownership, IRS records, soon we will have nothing that is private.

I have been reading about how there is a shortage of family practice doctors already because there is more money to be made in specialized medicine. If we have nationalized health care I can only imagine the kind of doctors we are going to be subject to, worse than we subject our vets to. Albeit not all are bad and I don't mean to lump them all together. It's just that most doctors treating the people that fought for our freedoms have been kicked out of high ranking hospitals and clinics for either misconduct or malpractice.

Yes PB let's not forget about your dear ole FD. You have the entire evening to love on him, er it, them, oh forget it. It's all yours for the evening anyway. Enjoy.

SA, I recently met someone who works for the DEA. When I asked who they report to he rolled his eyes and laughed. So, the wild, wild, west is in charge of enforcement?

GREAT POST DAVID!
WE MUST KEEP OUR HEADS WHEN ALL AROUND ARE LOSING THEIRS.

WE THE PEOPLE HAVE TO STAND UP AND DEMAND ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

WILL IT TAKE ANOTHER HOLOCAUST BEFORE THE PEOPLE GET OFF THEIR "DUFFS" AND TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK?

BLESSED BE!

Here is an interesting site with what states have prescription monitoring in place, or pending. These states will have a database on when you fill a controlled substance, insurance or not, and will "red flag" you if you "double dip" or fill too soon etc. My state, NC, has the grant, but has not implimented the program. I think this is a gross invasion of privacy, but thats my humble opinion.
