Confidentiality and Security of Pharmacy Patient Medication Record Systems

Information that is contained in patient medication record systems must be maintained for a period of at least 2 years.  The information that identifies a patient shall be deemed confidential and may be released to a person other than the patient, pharmacist, or prescriber only on written release of the patient.  If the dispenser decides that the prescription may cause a potentially harmful drug interaction or other problem due to a drug previously prescribed, the dispenser may communicate this information to the prescriber.  Finally, security codes or systems must be established on automated medication record systems to prevent unauthorized modification of data.
