The Benefits Of E-prescribing For Controlled Substances

By Author: Jim Miller
Total Articles: 2

In 2010, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) modified its regulations and provided the regulatory framework to allow e-prescribing for Schedule II-IV controlled drugs. Currently, more than 16,000 pharmacies in 46 states are legally able to accept e-prescriptions for controlled substances, and these numbers continue to grow each month.

As a physician, it’s important that your practice consider implementing electronic prescribing software to safely prescribe controlled drugs electronically. By using an e-prescribing platform like Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) Gold℠2.0, your practice will receive these benefits:

· Prescribes schedule II-V drugs electronically, as well as non-controlled drugs, through one workflow, eliminating interruptions to your practice’s workflow

· Eliminates transcription errors

· Reduces risk of fraud, abuse, forgery, wrongful death, malpractice and lawsuits

· Provides clinical alerts for drug and allergy interactions, dosing and duplicate therapies, and conditions such as pregnancy

· Easy-to-use and easy-to-implement e-prescribing software solution

· Prevents patients from “doctor shopping”

· Increases your practice’s appeal among specialty practices by exceeding controlled substance e-prescribing requirements

· Avoids development, certification and maintenance of building your own e-prescribing platform in-house

· Compliant with DEA IFR Part 1311 and NIST-SP-800-63-1 Level 3 two-factor authentication and identity proofing requirements and process

· DEA IFR Part 1311L: third party audit approved

A number of e-prescribing companies are currently offering electronic prescribing functionality within their medical records software solutions. To learn more about electronic prescribing and EPCS Gold 2.0, click here.
