I had to send three more error reports to Savon, the PDMP, and the Oregon Board of Pharmacy. Evidently this pharmacy can’t seem to hire the right people to fix some computer problems or maybe the training to use the system is insufficient. Whatever the problem is, it continues to be a major issue for monitoring controlled substance prescriptions in Oregon. For if the few patients that I have using Savon are FAILING to show prescriptions, then what about the hundreds, if not thousands, across the state that fill at Savon? They are FAILING to show up too? NOBODY else seems concerned about it?! What’s the purpose of the PDMP if no one is going to follow the law regarding submissions and no one is going to use it properly to see what prescriptions have been filled?
Here’s the fax sheet that I sent to the Oregon Board of Pharmacy and the PDMP on April 24th and 25th:
ANOTHER BATCH ERROR?
WHEN WILL THEY END?
IS IT TOO MUCH TO GET CORPORATIONS MAKING MILLIONS TO FOLLOW THE LAW?
OR TO GET STATE AGENCIES TO FINE THEM FOR VIOLATIONS?
