Purpose

The Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program (ILPMP) is part of the Illinois Department of Human Services, and was created in accordance with Public Act 720 ILCS 570/320 - Illinois General Assembly. The ILPMP is an electronic tool that collects information on controlled substance prescriptions dispensed in Illinois. The mission of the ILPMP is to enhance a prescriber's and dispenser's capacity to review a patient's prescription history for therapeutic and clinical reasons and to assist in the effective treatment of patients seeking medical care.

  2. Evaluate and recommend changes to the Administrative Rules regarding the ILPMP.
  3. Recommend inclusions of training materials for prescribers and dispensers regarding Continuing Medical Education and Continuing Education programs.
  4. Review the contents of the Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program website (ilpmp.org) to ensure that the contents are current at least on a semi-annual basis.
  5. Review opportunities for federal grants and other forms of funding to support projects to increase the number of EHRs integrating seamlessly into the ILPMP at least on a semi-annual basis.
