Study to Eval Relation Btw Doctor/Pharmacy Shopping & Outcomes of Misuse, Diversion, Abuse, Addiction by Med Rec Review

Summary

To assess whether the percentage of patients with behaviors suggestive of misuse, diversion, abuse and/or addiction described in the medical record increases across pre-defined categories of increasing doctor/pharmacy shopping behavior.

Description

Based on a review of the literature, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concluded that more data are needed regarding the serious risks of misuse, abuse, addiction, overdose, and death associated with the long-term use of extended release/long acting (ER/LA) opioid analgesics. Thus, the FDA is requiring that ER/LA opioid analgesic drug sponsors conduct post-marketing studies to assess these risks. The four observational post-marketing requirement (PMR) studies are labeled Study #2065-1, Study #2065-2, Study #2065-3, and Study #2065-4.

The objective of PMR Study #2065-4 is to define and validate doctor/pharmacy shopping as outcomes suggestive of misuse, diversion, abuse and/or addiction.

Study #2065-4 consists of three sub-studies, Study 4A, Study 4B, and Study 4C. In the current study (#2065-4 sub-study, Study 4C), the association of doctor/pharmacy shopping behavior with misuse, diversion, abuse and/or addiction will be assessed by reviewing medical charts in a sample of patients within specific categories of a priori defined doctor/pharmacy shopping. The four categories of doctor/pharmacy shopping behaviors identified and defined in Study 4A and will be applied to Study 4C. The medical chart is a rich source of information about the patient's medical conditions and behaviors suggestive of misuse and abuse. Medical record review for behaviors suggestive of misuse and abuse in patients with chronic pain discriminates between patients with and without opioid use disorders. Therefore, Study 4C was designed to utilize an insurance/health plan database (HealthCore Integrated Research Database [HIRD]) with access to medical records, to evaluate the association of a priori defined categories of doctor/pharmacy shopping and behaviors suggestive of misuse, diversion, abuse and/or addiction.
