    are responsible for correcting errors since system
    information originates with them

  controlled substance is dispensed to the patient.

  will be entered into the system.

Health care providers are encouraged to talk with
  their patients about their medications and let
  them know when their prescription information

  Patient Notification Language

The Oregon Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) is a
  new program to help health care providers and pharmacists
  provide better patient care in managing patients’
  prescriptions. They can access the program database to
  view more complete patient prescription information.
  Information about this prescription will be reported to the
  PDMP by the pharmacy as required by state law ORS
  431.964. Patients may request a free copy of their PDMP
  record by submitting a written request to the program. For
  more information or questions, visit www.orpdmp.com or
  call 971-673-0741.

               Patients’ Rights
   Patients may obtain a free copy of their PDMP
    record
   Patients may request that their information be
    corrected if they find errors in their record
   Patients may appeal to the OHA if their correction
    request is denied or if the OHA fails to respond to
    a request within 10 business days of receipt of
    the request
   Patients may notify OHA if they suspect their
    system information has been accessed or
    disclosed inappropriately

    Patients’ Rights Continued

The department shall notify the Attorney General
  and each affected individual of an improper
  disclosure of information from the prescription
  monitoring program.

In the event of a violation of the PDMP statute, the
  individual injured may bring a civil action against
  the person or entity that made the violation and
  may recover damages in the amount of $1,000 or
  actual damages, whichever is greater.

                        www.orpdmp.com
 Who is paying for the system?

Health care providers and pharmacists are
the ones paying for the system. Licensees
pay a $25 annual fee along with all of their
other licensing fees. No general state funds
are used.

The rationale is that this will be a tool used
by health care providers and pharmacists to
help provide better patient care.
