A collaborative of public and private organizations has launched ICERx.org (In Case of Emergency Prescription Database), an online resource that provides licensed prescribers and pharmacists caring for disaster victims with secure access to a patient's medication history.

Healthcare professionals who have registered on ICERx.org will have access to:

· Evacuee prescription history information, including drug name, dosage, quantity, day supply, and the name of the provider who wrote the prescription and the pharmacy that filled it.

· Available patient clinical alerts, including drug interaction, therapeutic duplication and elderly alerts.

· Clinical pharmacology drug reference information, including drug monographs, interaction reports and the drug identifier tool.

ICERx.org is a public service initiative developed by the American Medical Association (Chicago), Informed Decisions (Tampa, Fla.), the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (Alexandria, Va.), the National Community Pharmacists Association (Alexandria, Va.), RxHub (St Paul, Minn.) and SureScripts (Alexandria, Va.), as well as state Medicaid and other government agencies.
