Rep. Davisson pleased with INSPECT findings

EDITOR’S NOTE: State Representative Steve Davisson (R-Salem) issued the following statement regarding the findings of the Harold Rogers grant program’s and the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency’s study of the Indiana Scheduled Prescription Electronic Collection & Tracking Program (INSPECT). According to the study, INSPECT is widely known and used by prescribers, effective for monitoring patient prescriptions and reducing controlled substance misuse and abuse.

STATEHOUSE – “As a member of the Prescription Drug Abuse Task Force, I am very pleased to hear that INSPECT is not only being utilized by prescribers of controlled substances, but that is effective in the reduction of misuse and abuse of prescription drugs. The issue of prescription drug abuse and misuse affects Hoosiers all across our state, and by using INSPECT, those who administer prescription drugs will have more information to prevent drug abuse from occurring.

“These findings give me confidence that prescription abuse in Indiana is not going unnoticed, and I will continue to work towards combating this statewide problem.”
