Controlled Substance Monitoring Database Program


In accordance with the Controlled Substance Monitoring Act of 2002, the Tennessee Department of Health established a database to monitor the dispensing of Schedule II, III, IV & V controlled substances. Data collection began for all dispensers on December 1, 2006. The Prescription Safety Act of 2012 enhances the monitoring capabilities of the database.  The Board of Pharmacy and the Controlled Substance Monitoring Database (CSMD) Committee establish, administer, maintain and direct the functioning of the database in accordance with these statutes.

Pharmacies within the state of Tennessee are required to upload all schedule II-V prescriptions at least every seven (7) days.  Optimum Technology currently is the contracted vendor to assist all state of Tennessee dispensers in the upload and inclusion of their prescriptions into the CSMD database.

For dispensers, information on uploading prescription data may be obtained from Optimum at 866-683-9771. Our data collection manual may be viewed and printed by clicking here.  You may also email Optimum for assistance with uploading data at .  The website for data collection is

For healthcare providers seeking to query a patient’s prescription history, registering to become a user on the CSMD website may be accomplished by navigating to and click on "Register” and provide all required information.  The email address provided should be personal and confidential.  Once approved, the new user will receive an email with their login credentials for the database.
