Program set up to monitor online sale of prescription drugs

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - A secure online prescription monitoring program has been developed by the Texas Department of Public Safety. It is being called Prescription Access in Texas, or "PAT."

The program provides controlled substance prescription dispensing history to authorized health care and law enforcement professionals.

Texas law restricts access to prescription data to practitioners and pharmacists who are inquiring about their patients, and to various law enforcement agencies for conducting investigations.
