MAPS, the state’s prescription drug monitoring program, is a software tool that provides prescribers and dispensers with real-time prescription data and analytics of controlled substances and schedule 2-5 drugs that have been dispensed. MAPS helps clinicians to make informed decisions and provides resources to better assess a patient’s risk for substance use disorder. To promote patient safety, Public Act 248 of 2017 requires prescribers to register with MAPS and before prescribing a Schedule 2-5 controlled substance, exceeding a three-day supply, must review a MAPS report.
