If you are an Ohio prescriber, you may have recently received a personalized PMP Prescriber Report which provides you with a snapshot of your prescribing of controlled substances from July 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017.
Please be advised that the report will be disseminated on a quarterly basis. OARRS users will be provided advanced notice by the Board via email prior to the dissemination of the next report.
Below are some Frequently Asked Questions to help you make the most of the information that has been provided.
Q: How do I change my Healthcare Specialty if it appears to be incorrect?
Within the OARRS site, click your name (upper right corner), then click My Profile. You will find the option to change your Healthcare Specialty on this page.
This initial round of reporting reflects the 2
level Healthcare Specialty. Future report deliveries will drill down to the 3
level Healthcare Specialty when appropriate, for example: Allopathic & Osteopathic Physicians > Family Medicine > Hospice and Palliative Medicine represents 3 Healthcare Specialty levels. For purposes of peer group comparisons from this example, this round of reporting utilized Family Medicine. Future rounds would utilize Hospice and Palliative Medicine for peer group comparisons.
