It was just a few years ago that electronic prescribing of narcotics (EPCS) became legalized nationally. Many states are now considering mandating the use of EPCS for prescription management of controlled substances. Several states have initiated new regulations requiring EPCS along with National Registry Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) access requirements.
You can research your state’s status and review an interactive map to learn more about EPCS and PDMP information in your area. This reference site from DrFirst gives details regarding regulations that are already in effect or pending for January 1, 2021.
AdvancedMD uses DrFirst for our EPCS solution and we are already prepared to meet the PDMP requirements nationally. Our EPCS software is unified within our practice management and EHR for a remarkably smooth user experience. We have special incentives going on right now to help you transition to our EPCS system to help patients during this time of change.
