California CURES 2.0
California's prescription drug monitoring program (CURES: Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System) is an online system used by prescribers to review prescriptions for controlled substances. All California licensed prescribers and pharmacists who are authorized to prescribe, order, administer, or dispense scheduled drugs must register for CURES and use regularly to check patient prescriptions.
Features of CURES
- Save search list: Save patient searches so they are easily available the next time a prescriber logs in
- Peer-to-peer communication: Send communications securely to providers about mutual patients
- Alerts/messaging: Receive daily alerts with information on patients who reach prescribing thresholds
CURES alerts prescribers to patients with multiple prescribers, high-dose opioid prescriptions, concomitant opioids, and benzodiazapines and daily opioids over 90 days.
