NACDS suggests that HCFA study whether it's more cost-effective to do pro-DUR screening via a state Medicaid on-line electronic claims management system (ECMS) or at the community pharmacy level.
The association's other major concern is the increased liability it says pharmacists face as a result of performing pro-DUR. More information will lead to more counselling - hence, more opportunities for supposed and actual error, and more opportunities to be sued.
The state boards are responsible for, among other things, certifying pharmacy information systems for conducting pro-DUR. And drug chains are now adapting their electronic claims processing systems to facilitate the reviews.
