Abuse, misuse, diversion and illegal sale of prescription drugs are some of the largest threats facing the safety and welfare of the citizens of Kentucky. The Kentucky All Schedule Prescription Electronic Reporting System (KASPER) tracks controlled substances dispensed within the
state. A KASPER report shows all scheduled prescriptions for an individual over a specified timer period, the prescriber and the dispenser. KASPER is designed to be a source of information for practitioners and pharmacists and an investigative tool for law enforcement and regulatory agencies.
KASPER is not intended to prevent people from obtaining needed medications. By law, UHS is required to participate in KASPER efforts. Per the guidelines established by Kentucky state legislation, when prescribing controlled substances, we will pull a KASPER report on the patient to verify
prescribing privileges. This is for your protection as a patient and for our protection as a health care provider.
