Lake Ozark is the next lake area community to consider adopting a program to monitor prescription drugs. The Board of Aldermen will hear a resolution at their meeting next week asking them to adopt the program administered out of St. Louis County. The measure actually won’t affect many businesses though. Most existing pharmacies in Lake Ozark are in Miller County, which has been participating in the program since last summer. The agreement before the board is with the Camden County Health Department. The program requires pharmacies to report prescription information, including the patient’s name, date of birth, type of drug prescribed, and the amount dispensed. That information goes into a larger database. The goal of the program is to help identify and prevent abuse and misuse of prescription drugs. The Lake Ozark Board of Aldermen meeting is scheduled for Tuesday at 6pm.
