State Selects New Data Collection Vendor for Prescription Monitoring

Pharmacy Focus                

California’s Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System, or CURES, is a database that contains all controlled drug history information, including the drug dispensed, drug quantity and strength, patient name, address, prescriber name and authorization number, including the DEA number or prescription number.

The current vendor, Infinite Solutions Inc., has had the contract for the past two years. However, due to the State of California’s competitive bid process, the Department of Justice was not able to award the contract until the budget was approved. The new contract was awarded to Atlantic Associates Inc. effective Jan. 1, 2011.
