MicroPact Powers Illinois Opioid Alternative Pilot Program

Illinois extends the use of entellitrak® in support of
medical cannabis programs to address opioid abuse.

HERNDON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MicroPact, the passion and technology that’s transforming government,
has implemented a system for the Illinois Department of Public Health
(IDPH) Office of Health Promotion (OHPm) in support of a new program
that provides access to medical cannabis as an alternative to opioids
for pain control. MicroPact is providing entellitrak®, a
low-code application development platform for case management, to power
the Illinois Cannabis Tracking System (ICTS).

On August 28, 2018, the Alternatives
to Opioids Act of 2018
was signed into Illinois law. The act
established the Opioid Alternative Pilot Program, which allows certain
patients who otherwise would or could be prescribed opioids, or have
already been prescribed opioids, access to medical cannabis as an
alternative. The entellitrak-based ICTS went live on January 31, 2019.
It is used to register eligible applicants and coordinate the overall
program. MicroPact also provides support for the Illinois Medical
Cannabis Pilot Program (MCPP).

“The vision for the Opioid Alternative Pilot Program is to reduce opioid
deaths in Illinois, by giving patients another option for dealing with
their conditions,” said Conny Mueller Moody, MBA, Deputy Director,
Office of Health Promotion/Medical Cannabis for Illinois. “MicroPact has
been a strong partner as we’ve worked to launch the ICTS system, and
we’ve relied on its expertise and technology to go live with this

“The opioid crisis is a national Public Health Emergency. The
individuals tackling this problem require innovative thinking and
powerful technology,” said Kris Collo, Founder, President and CEO of
MicroPact. “MicroPact is proud to be supporting the bold strategy that
