This article discusses the access and disclosure of prescription information on software platforms like eScribe and MAPS. It highlights that HIPAA regulations govern such access, and as long as the information is obtained through business associate agreements and used for treatment purposes, specific patient consent may not be necessary. The article also mentions that the Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS) allows prescribers to access controlled substance prescription information without requiring patient consent.
