EPCS – Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances: The DEA has amended its regulations to allow practitioners to be able to send their prescriptions for controlled substances electronically for all Schedule II through V, in lieu of signing and faxing or calling in verbal authorizations
This would allow a pharmacist to accept, annotate, dispense and electronically archive such prescriptions.
EPCS eliminates the prescribers need to sign and fax in a controlled prescription or give a verbal authorization over the phone.
Reduces paperwork and the number of prescription errors that illegible handwriting, missing faxes, and misinterpreted verbal authorizations cause.
Patients will be able to fill and receive their prescriptions quicker and more efficiently.
