INSPECT Purpose & Goals

INSPECT was designed to serve as a tool to address the problem of prescription drug abuse and diversion in Indiana. By compiling controlled substance information into an online database INSPECT performs two critical functions:

1. Maintain a clearinghouse of patient information for health care professionals.
2. Provide an important investigative tool for law enforcement.

INSPECT seeks to enhance the ability of prescribers such as physicians, advanced practice nurses, physicians assistants  and dispensers as they perform critical public health functions. The program does this while maintaining the security of Hoosiers’ important prescription information.



The Indiana General Assembly passed legislation in the mid-1990s that required the collection of controlled substance data through the Central Repository for Controlled Substances Data.

At its inception, Indiana’s Prescription Monitoring program required licensed pharmacies in Indiana to report on dispensed schedule II controlled substances. In early 2004, grant funding and an act of the Legislature helped create INSPECT in its present form, expanding reporting requirements to include schedule II through V controlled substances. The program has moved from 7-day to 3-day reporting. Beginning January 1, 2016, the program will move to 24-hour reporting, providing nearly real-time data to practitioners.

INSPECT is funded at the state level by controlled substance licensing fees. Additionally, INSPECT continues to fulfill its obligations under the Harold Rogers and SAMHSA grant programs.

The INSPECT application is accessible only to registered users and available only through a secure website maintained by Program Staff.
