Submission + - I-STOP Act To Track Every Controlled Drug Prescription in NY State->

An anonymous reader writes: Starting August 27th, the NY State I-STOP Act will require every physician (and psychotherapist) in NYS to check a state managed database before prescribing controlled substances (Schedules II, III, IV). This database will contain a history of all of your prior prescriptions, and will be available to any registered physician, or designee in their practice. What are the privacy and security implications? Are we going to hear about evidence from this database being used at criminal trials, or in divorce proceedings? Is this a bellwether of a national trend?
