NarcFacts gets PDMP data from each state’s PDMP database. This data is generally accurate; however, NarcFacts performs data analysis to see if the state has merged multiple patients into a single report. NarcFacts alerts are based on an analysis of this PDMP data as well as additional sources of data. NarcFacts alerts are not a diagnosis of any condition and do not suggest prescribing or dispensing decisions. They should be used to highlight areas of concern for the pharmacist to consider when dispensing controlled substances, or that may warrant a conversation between pharmacist and patient or patient’s prescriber.
NarcFacts licensors will keep PDMP request data for 3 years or longer if required to meet specific state requirements. This provides the ability run reports to comply with audit requests. The data retained is only request related (e.g. the date/time of the request, the requestor and the patient). The actual PDMP clinical data is not retained. The actual PDMP data can be kept for a specific period of time in an encrypted database, but it is purged within a timeframe defined by the State, the pharmacy, or NarcFacts licensors, whichever is shortest. Audit logs of when a user logs in and which patients they view is also retained.
