NC Controlled Substances Reporting System Survey

NC DHHS is offering free one-on-one technical assistance to anyone who is having difficulty using the NC Controlled Substances Reporting System (NC CSRS). To help NC DHHS determine how best to meet training needs, the North Carolina Medical Board (NCMB) agreed to help NC CSRS survey physicians and PAs to identify areas of concern. Read full NCMB article and complete the survey here.

On August 11, the NC HIEA and NCDHHS hosted a Teletown Hall focusing on the Controlled Substance Reporting System (CSRS). Participants learned about what the CSRS is, the Mandated Use that began July 7, 2021, and how the CSRS Utilization Team is available to support the use of the system as a clinical tool.
