The coordinated care electronic tracking program access to information from the program.

(1) Access. The coordinated care electronic tracking program may have access to data for the purposes of:
(a) Providing program data to emergency department personnel when the patient registers in the emergency department; and
(b) Providing notice to the patient's providers, appropriate care coordination staff, and prescribers listed in the patient's prescription monitoring program record when the patient has experienced a controlled substance overdose event.
(2) Registration for access. The coordinated care electronic tracking program may register for access by using the registration process established by the department.
(3) Verification by the department. The department or its designee shall verify the authentication and identity of the coordinated care electronic tracking program before allowing access to any prescription monitoring information.
(4) Procedure for accessing prescription data. The coordinated care electronic tracking program must access data from the program electronically through the state health information exchange. The data shall only be retained long enough by the tracking program to create the report needed by emergency department personnel when the patient registered or to provide notice of an overdose event.
(5) If the secure connection between the coordinated care electronic tracking program and the state health information exchange is compromised, the coordinated care electronic tracking program shall notify the department's designee by telephone and in writing as soon as reasonably possible.
(6) All requests for, uses of, and disclosures of prescription monitoring information by authorized persons must be consistent with the mandate as outlined in RCW 70.225.040 and this chapter.
