Dr. Eric Wright with the Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI presented the final report, “The Indiana INSPECT Evaluation: Key Findings and Recommendations From A Descriptive Analysis of INSPECT Data,” to the Indiana Board of Pharmacy on Monday, March 9, 2015. The web link provides the full report that examined de-identified INSPECT and provider licensure data from Calendar Years 2011 to 2013. The data was analyzed to identify trends with controlled substance prescriptions, and the report includes, but is not limited to, analysis on dispensation patterns, doctor shopping and demographic characteristics of opioid prescribers.
In 2012, the Harold Rogers grant program funded the following study conducted by the Center for Health Policy at the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI. The study evaluated the effectiveness of INSPECT and the impact it was making to reduce prescription drug abuse. The Center for Health Policy was solely responsible for analyzing the data and summarizing the findings from the research. The Indiana Professional Licensing Agency, the Indiana State Department of Health and the Attorney General’s Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Task Force collaborated on this effort.
INSPECT is now sharing live data with Utah! - Indiana now shares data with 20 states.
