Managing Compliance

Prescription drug overdose is the number one cause of accidental death in the United States. Beyond these tragic deaths, prescription drug abuse causes many more emergency room visits and billions of dollars in medical expenses. Every incident represents a problem and a potential liability.

Identifying risks early helps manage risks associated with overdose and abuse. Armed with better information in a useful form, physicians can help identify abusers and direct them to treatment earlier in the process.

The AAOS recommends the following tools, which have been shown to significantly reduce medication errors:

  • computerized physician order entry
  • computerized decision support systems
  • computerized monitoring of adverse drug events
  • pharmacist-assisted rounds
  • high-risk drug protocols

Overdose deaths are “just the tip of the iceberg”: that for every death there are many more hospital treatment admissions, emergency room visits, people who abuse or are dependent on prescription drugs and nonmedical users.

Recommendations for full use of PDMP include:

  • PDMPs can be effective clinical tools in medication management involving controlled substances.
  • PDMPs should be available for clinicians across state boundaries.
  • Every prescribing clinician should be familiar with the process of accessing and utilizing information from PDMP’s so that they can incorporate this information in their practices.
