Missouri Behavioral Pharmacy Management Program Receives 2008 SAMHSA Science and Service Award
Date:12/17/2008

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Missouri Behavioral Pharmacy Management Program (BPM) has been selected by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to receive one of their prestigious 2008 Science and Service Awards. These awards "recognize exemplary implementation of evidence-based interventions that have been shown to prevent and/or treat mental illnesses and substance abuse"(1).

The program is a partnership between the Missouri Department of Mental Health, the Missouri Department of Social Services - MO HealthNet Division, and Comprehensive NeuroScience, Inc. (CNS). Eli Lilly and Company provided funding for the initial pilot project. John Docherty, M.D., founder and CEO of CNS, a national clinical research company, remarked, "We are pleased that SAMHSA has recognized this program as innovative and a sound practice in the treatment of mental illness."

For the past five years, the BPM has been improving the psychiatric medication prescribing practices of thousands of Missouri physicians. Using extensive pharmacy data mining and the application of rigorously developed Quality Indicators(TM), the BPM focuses on prescribers who practice outside of evidence-based or best practice standards including areas such as prescribing multiple medications from the same therapeutic class, prescribing above or below recommended dosing levels, or premature or rapid switching from one medication to another. In addition, providers are also alerted to instances of duplicative prescribing of medication by other doctors for their patients, and failure of their patients to fill their prescriptions in a timely fashion.

John Docherty of CNS explains the design of the program: "A data-rich educational mailing aims to impart knowledge of best practices in pharmacotherapy for mental and behavioral health disorders. It offers prescribers clear, simple suggestions for improving
