Important Notice

We replaced ITEAMS with the Pharmacy Inventory and Ordering System (PIOS) on January 23, 2023.

To continue ordering TB and STD medications after the transition, providers will need to register their location into PIOS. Providers must complete the required PIOS training prior to registering their location. Access the PIOS Training.
