Domino/Aronberg Prescription Drug Validation Plan Saves Lives, Protects Privacy, Costs Less
Date:3/24/2009

w firsthand the consequences of not having a prescription-drug validation system in place," Sen. Aronberg said. "Ours is not a record that Florida can be proud of, but the legislation that Rep. Domino and I propose would fix this problem and save lives."

When the prescribed system is in place, a Florida Department of Health database will assign a unique identification number to the biometric scan, which will then immediately convey the information back to the prescriber. Names of patients, Social Security numbers and other personal information will never be transmitted to the database.

The unique ID number gives the pharmacist or dispensing health-care professional the ability to immediately determine whether the prescription conflicts or overlaps with other medication delivered to the same person. This also protects pharmacists and doctors from becoming innocent victims of fraud. Moreover, it reduces their legal liability by enabling them to quickly recognize prescriptions that pose an interaction hazard.

Dr. Fred Lippman, of the Nova Southeastern University Health Professions Division in Fort Lauderdale, endorses the Domino/Aronberg proposal for another reason: It protects patients who chronically suffer with severe pain, e.g. cancer patients, and rely on their prescriptions to get through the day.

"Pharmaceutical manufacturers produce a limited supply of pain medications. When legally controlled medications are illegally diverted, the adequate supply for legitimate use is placed at risk," said Lippman, a pharmacist who served in the Florida House of Representatives from 1978 to 1998.

Unlike competing bills addressing the same problem, the Domino/Aronberg plan's costs would largely be absorbed by industry, federal grants and dispensers. Start-up cost for dispensers is estimated at an on average cost of $350. Monthly operational costs are projected to run from $50 to $15
