Incident Reporting and Analysis System (IRAS)

The Incident Reporting and Analysis System (IRAS) is an online incident reporting tool that enables the Department to collect and analyze information about critical incidents that occur in substance abuse and mental health facilities. In some cases, critical incidents that occur outside of facilities, such as the death of an individual served, must also be reported. IRAS is not a tool for case management or maintenance of clinical records.

Each managing entity (ME) is required to submit incident reports to IRAS on behalf of its subcontracted providers. Each ME must provide a mechanism for their subcontracted providers to report critical incidents to the ME.

Private (non-contracted) substance abuse providers licensed by the Department are required to submit incident reports to IRAS directly.

Private (non-contracted) designated receiving facilities are not required to report incidents to IRAS unless they are licensed by the Department as substance abuse providers.

In order to begin reporting incidents to IRAS, MEs, facilities, and staff must be registered. To learn more about IRAS registration and reporting, click on the links below.
