On Wednesday, Purdue Pharma offered the state $1 million over two years to start up the state's stalled prescription drug database. The database had been tied up in a vendor dispute in the Department of Administrative Hearings until Tuesday, when the bid protest was dismissed. While the Florida House is proposing to eliminate the database, the Senate President would like to see Governor Rick Scott use the funds to startup the database. Gov. Scott, however, repeated his opposition to the program based on the lack of full funding and the potential release of patient records in the event of a database breach. The Department of Health is expected to award a contract to the winning bidder by early May.
