WHAT IS THE PURPOSE AND GOALS OF INSPECT?

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 (PMP WebCenter) INSPECT performs two critical functions:

1. Maintain a warehouse of patient information for health care professionals

2. Provide an important investigative tool for law enforcement.

INSPECT does not seek to limit the ability of doctors to perform their jobs effectively, nor does it intend to violate individual privacy or patient rights. Various security measures have been put in place to prevent abuse and ensure the confidentiality of patient medical records and other privileged information.
