Classifies prescriptions, drug orders, records, and other prescription information that identifies patients as confidential. Prohibits disclosure of such information except in specified circumstances (e.g., when requested by the patient, when requested by a prescribing practitioner, to the FDA in accordance with federal law, etc.). Clarifies that this section does not prevent pharmacists from disclosing de-identified data for research purposes, licensing boards from accessing records when necessary to perform their duties, or courts from ordering disclosure. Imposes a maximum $3,000 fine on persons that violate this section. Provides individuals that disclose information in good faith with immunity from any resulting civil liability.
