Section 2080.200  Prescriber and Dispenser Inquiry System

 

The Department's Bureau of Pharmacy and Clinical Support Systems or successor shall establish, operate, maintain and enhance a stand-alone, one-to-one secure link with the necessary encrypted software that shall function as a prescriber and dispenser inquiry system to be known as the Illinois Prescription Information Library (PIL).  The Bureau must install a system to track each use of the PIL.  The tracking system will only be utilized for the following purposes:

 

a)         Determining if a prescriber or dispenser is properly using the PIL.  If it is considered by the PIL staff that any registered user is not using the PIL responsibly, an investigator from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation's Bureau of Drug Compliance will be contacted in order to investigate the issue.  If the PIL supervisor considers the issue serious and of immediate concern, the registered user's PIL access may be suspended.

 

b)         Determining if a non-registered person or entity is attempting to access the system.  The PIL staff shall report the situation to the Department and to one or more of the following entities:

 

1)         Illinois law enforcement agency;

 

2)         Illinois regulatory entity;

 

3)         federal agency; or

 

4)         an agency in another state.
