10. Curbing distribution. Specific efforts have been made to limit the dosage or distribution of a particular drug in a target population or region. For instance, Florida and four other states limit OxyContin prescriptions to 120 pills per month per patient. Besides dosage, the number of refills could be limited. When prescribers do not specify a refill number, patients can illegally add one. Another method is to limit distribution via a specialized dispensing machine. One example is the "Automated Dispensing System" which is provided by pharmacies to long-term care facilities in several states. These types of electronic pill dispensers also allow physicians to monitor usage.

Increasing administrative responsibilities—due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models—reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Patient registration typically involves mailing registration packets to patients before their appointments and asking them to fill them out prior to their appointments; however, the patients often bring them to their appointments without filling them out, leading to delays in care and backups in the clinic’s schedule. This also leads to many primary care providers not having adequate time with their new patients nor time to familiarize themselves with their patient’s current health status. This calls for a new process that does not put the onus on the patient.
