New policies and procedures for Indiana’s PDMP INSPECT and maybe many other states’ PDMP

All of this is the new warning texts on Indiana’s PDMP INSPECT login page and Bamboo Health is who operates Narxcare and Bamboo Health is owned byhttps://www.experian.com/ I have read that they have moved all of their databases off shore to a country where our HIPAA laws don’t apply.  If INSPECT database is the template of other state PDMP’s,  I don’t see any way for a individual user to enter specific data on a individual. But I am sure that most pharmacy software system has a way to enter specific data on a pt… Of course, the pt is patronizing a chain pharmacy… I am sure that whatever a pharmacist puts into that particular chain’s pharmacy software system… will show up on the computer terminal in any of their Rx depts…  I have been told that at least at Walgreens,  a Pharmacist can “black ball” a pt at one store and that pt will be “black balled” at all the chains Rxs dept… with Walgreens and CVS… that will be 9,000 Rx depts of each chain.  Of course, if you are patronizing a independent pharmacy, where you will be dealing with the Pharmacist/owner…  the pt can only be black balled in that ONE STORE’S COMPUTER.  Here is a hyperlink to search for a independent pharmacy by zip code and mile radius  https://ncpa.org/pharmacy-locator
