The Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS) is the prescription monitoring program for the State of Michigan. Prescription monitoring programs are used to identify and prevent drug diversion at the prescriber, pharmacy and patient levels by collecting Schedule 2-5 controlled substances prescriptions dispensed by pharmacies and practitioners.
Collection of this prescription information allows physicians, dentists, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, podiatrists and veterinarians to query this data for patient-specific reports which allow a review of the patient's Schedules 2-5 controlled substance prescription records. This enables the practitioner to determine if patients are receiving controlled substances from other providers and to assist in the prevention of prescription drug abuse.
Prescription data collected by pharmacies and dispensing practitioners is stored into a secure central database within the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. Only those persons authorized by Section 333.7333a of the Michigan Public Health Code are allowed access to the information contained in the MAPS database, which includes health professionals and law enforcement agencies.
Online registration to MAPS is required to submit prescription data electronically and to request patient controlled substance history reports.
