K-TRACS, our state's prescription drug monitoring program, provides physicians access to important information. The program has a number of valuable benefits:
- Physicians can use the K-TRACS data to gather feedback on their own prescribing trends
- Physicians can learn more about their patients' history with controlled substances.
- Data within K-TRACS can also be helpful to physicians who might suspect a patient is misusing controlled substances.
KMS encourages all physicians who prescribe controlled substances in Kansas to register for and regularly access K-TRACS.
