Looking to Contact the Tracking System?

The Iowa Health Professions Tracking Center, operated by OSCEP, maintains continuous inventories of Iowa's major health professions:

  • Physicians 
  • Pharmacists
  • Dentists
  • Physician Assistants
  • Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners

Established in 1977, the Iowa Physician Information System served as the model for the creation of the other health professions tracking systems. In 1994, the Iowa General Assembly approved the Primary Care Initiative, a state supported program designed to augment the state’s efforts to produce primary care doctors. In 1995, the Primary Care Initiative was expanded and part of the funds were designated for the purpose of establishing and operating the Iowa Health Professions Inventory, a database for continuous tracking of Iowa’s health professions workforce.
