The Oregon Board of Pharmacy
has proposed rules requiring some medical practices to register with the Pharmacy Board.
The proposed rules require medical practices where physicians, PAs, and other providers dispense medication to register as a dispensing outlet with the Pharmacy Board. The rules require an application, fee, annual renewal, and annual inspection. The Pharmacy Board summarizes: "These rules are intended to describe the [Pharmacy] Board's registration and compliance expectations for a practitioner who has been granted dispensing privileges from their licensing board and engages in drug dispensing from their practice location. A practitioner who engages in dispensing certain FDA-approved human prescription drug therapies greater than a 72 hours supply or any medication refill must register their dispensing site as a drug outlet with the [Pharmacy] Board as a Dispensing Practitioner Drug Outlet (DPDO)."
The Pharmacy Board will hold a public hearing on July 27, 2017, at 9:30 a.m. to accept testimony on the current draft of the proposed rules.
