E-Forcse Logo The Florida Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, known as E-FORCSE® (Electronic-Florida Online Reporting of Controlled Substance Evaluation Program), was created by the 2009 Florida Legislature in an initiative to encourage safer prescribing of controlled substances and to reduce drug abuse and diversion within the state of Florida. E-FORCSE® has selected Health Information Designs, LLC, to develop a database that collects and stores prescribing and dispensing data for controlled substances in Schedules II, III, and IV. Section 893.055, Florida Statutes, requires health care practitioners to report to the PDMP each time a controlled substance is dispensed to an individual. The information is reported through the electronic system as soon as possible but not more than 7 days after dispensing. This reporting timeframe ensures that health care practitioners have the most up-to-date information available.

In addition to practitioners and pharmacists, a law enforcement agency may request confidential controlled substance dispensing information in the database during active investigations regarding potential criminal activity, fraud, or theft regarding prescribed controlled substances and that has entered into a user agreement with the Department. Also the Department of Health Investigative Services Unit and Medicaid Fraud Unit investigators may request information in the database to aide in the investigation of cases involving controlled substances.

The webpage has undergone an extensive update designed to improve the user experience. The new user interface is more intuitive and visually pleasing, and also provides some new functionality.
