Title: Method and system for delivering substitute medical therapies with restricted access

Abstract: A system and methods are provided for delivering to a patient a substitute medical therapy with restricted distribution or access. One example is a medical therapy provider, such as a pharmacist, receiving a prescription for a medical therapy for a patient and describing these procedures and the substitute medical therapy to the patient. The patient and patient's prescribing physician will determine whether the proposed substitute medical therapy is desired and would be indicated for this patient, including obtaining data and informed consent from the patient. The method also provides a distributor or third party reviewer the prescription and certification from a qualified patient's physician, data and consent from a qualified patient, including an authorization for the substitute medical therapy and confirming the informed consent from a qualified patient by the distributor or a third party reviewer. From this data, the distributor or third party reviewer determines the qualified patient's eligibility for access to the medical therapy and, if the qualified patient is found eligible, delivers the medical therapy to the patient.
