Please be advised that the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy sent out emails this morning (11/27/2017) to approximately 7,000 prescribers indicating failure to comply with laws requiring the use of the Ohio Automated Rx Reporting System (OARRS).

The emails were erroneously distributed without the knowledge of the State Medical Board of Ohio, Ohio Board of Nursing or the Ohio State Dental Board and may contain inaccurate information. If you received this morning’s email, please disregard it. You do not need to take any further action at this time. The Pharmacy Board apologizes for this mistake and any concerns it may have caused.

The Ohio Automated Rx Reporting System (OARRS) is a tool to track the dispensing and personal furnishing of controlled prescription drugs to patients. OARRS is designed to monitor this information for suspected abuse or diversion (i.e., channeling drugs into illegal use), and can give a prescriber or pharmacist critical information regarding a patient’s controlled substance prescription history. This information can help prescribers and pharmacists identify high-risk patients who would benefit from early interventions.
