Lawmakers push for a new prescription drug-tracking program
Lawmakers in Albany could soon announce a new prescription drug-tracking program. Under a proposal working its way through the Capitol, doctors and pharmacists would be required to participate in the drug-tracking program in an effort to crack down on the ever-increasing problem of prescription drug abuse in the Empire State. Officials believe the new program would allow doctors and pharmacists to track prescriptions punched in just 30 minutes behind real time.
