Question description

Prescription Pain Medication Abuse

Chapter 19 covers Analgesics, Sedatives and Hypnotics.  Frequently we hear in the news of another celebrity dying of an overdose of prescription pain meds; while ordinary people also die regularly of this same addiction.  Usually these persons have managed to go to multiple doctors to get multiple prescriptions. 

Be creative. What tracking process would you purpose for curbing the abuse of prescription pain meds?  Would this be at the physician or pharmacy level, 
or both, and why?  How would you fund and implement the process?  As a medical coder and biller where would you fit into this process?
