Yesterday (November 27), the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy (SOBP) sent emails to approximately 7,000 prescribers indicating failure to comply with laws requiring the use of the Ohio Automated Rx Reporting System (OARRS).
Both the SOBP and the State Medical Board of Ohio (SMBO) have now indicated that the emails were sent inadvertently and were inaccurate. The emails were erroneously distributed by the SOBP without the knowledge of the SMBO, the Ohio Board of Nursing, or the Ohio State Dental Board and may contain inaccurate information. Each physician who received the original email has received a second email from the SOBP that apologizes for the error and asks that anyone who received the original email to disregard it. You do not need to take any further action at this time.
