A program to monitor prescription drugs goes before the Board of Aldermen in Camdenton tomorrow night. After hearing a presentation from the health department on the topic at their last meeting, the board’s expected to hold the first reading on a bill to adopt it. The program currently operates in more than 50 counties and requires doctors and pharmacists to upload prescription data within a week. The system monitors the types and amounts of drugs disbursed. The data can be used to monitor red flags that may indicate overprescribing, overuse, or doctor shopping. Camdenton is one of several communities that is considering adopting it. Tuesday’s meeting begins at 6pm.
