AMA Gives State High Marks For Monitoring Prescription Drugs


The American Medical Association has listed Ohio as the top state for monitoring prescription drugs.  The AMA says Ohio processed more than 24 million queries from doctors and other health professionals through the Board of Pharmacy's Automated Rx Reporting System. The state created the system to track the dispensing of controlled substances and monitor suspected abuse. The system allows pharmacists to check prescribing histories in Ohio and border states that have similar systems.
