A Remarkably Smooth EPCS User Experience with DrFirst

Patient Experience

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.

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
