Newly Updated Pharmacy State Law Compendium Available
Date:10/8/2009

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The most comprehensive, up-to-date compendium of state and federal pharmacy statutes and regulations is now available from Point of Care Partners (POCP), a nationally known boutique healthcare information technology (HIT) strategy and management consulting firm with expertise in ePrescribing, chronic care management, electronic health records, health information exchanges and personal health records.

The compendium, updated for the third quarter of 2009, is a must-have for clinical software companies; policymakers; intermediaries; retail, mail and specialty pharmacies, and others who need to have the latest state-specific information on the changing regulatory landscape affecting ePrescribing and the exchange of prescription information across state lines. The timing for this updated compendium has never been better, given the wide variations and constant realignment of requirements among jurisdictions and Boards of Pharmacy (BOP) and the growing use of ePrescribing and health information exchange within and across states.

"Our pharmacy law database is invaluable to help ensure that clients can comply with state and federal ePrescribing regulations," said Sherry L. Neumann, PharmD, an affiliated consultant with POCP who created the compendium and has updated it every quarter since 2006.

The new database has the most currently available information as of the third quarter of 2009, which is gleaned from BOP websites and other published materials, such as pharmacy association and BOP newsletters, state health and safety codes, and Medicaid rules and regulations (where applicable). It includes:

  • State-by-state citations of the rules, regulations and statutes pertaining to electronically transmitted, faxed or printed prescriptions
  • Authentication requirements for faxed prescriptions
  • Addresses, Web sites and contact information
  • Actionable spreadsheet summarizing each Board's requirements
  • Indication of which states require written and/or in-person approval

"State pharmacy-related regulations and statutes are forever changing and are often ambiguous. That's why persistent monitoring and in-depth analysis are critical," said Tony Schueth, POCP's founder and managing partner. "POCP is in a unique position to interpret and analyze the rules and regulations and to work with clients to utilize the information to further their business goals."

In addition to the compendium and its quarterly updates, Dr. Neumann and other POCP staff are available to create value-driven assessments, as well as drill down on issues specific to individual market situations, to assist product development and implementation teams. For additional information, call Tony Schueth at 954-346-1999.
