Summit Explains New Law to Fight Against Prescription Drug Abuse | Summit Medical Group - Knoxville & East Tennessee

Jeffery Tuck, J. D., R.N. is the vice president and general counsel for Summit Medical Group. He said, "If our physicians looked at the database on the website and saw the patient they were about to prescribe a pain medication for had receive a pain medication from another physician and the patient did not reveal that to the physician writing the prescription then it could be considered doctor shopping."

Tennessee law defines "doctor shopping" as a patient who receives the same or similar medication from another physician within 30 days.
Dr. Tuck said doctors with Summit Medical Group have been training since the beginning of the year on how to use the database.
"When they check the database they should indicate in the patient's medical record that a new prescription is being issued today, here's why I think the patient needs the prescription, and that I have checked the controlled substance database," said Dr. Tuck.
