MDToolbox Certifies Mobile Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) Solution
MDToolbox, an industry leader in e-Prescribing software and services, is proud to announce it has certified MDToolbox-Rx Mobile for Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS). The certification enhances prescribers’ ability to electronically send all prescriptions, including schedule 2-5 drugs, with a smartphone or tablet.
MDToolbox offers one of the only mobile EPCS solutions available to stand alone users, as well as integration partners on the market today. The mobile version is web-based, just like the full version, allowing prescribers to use it on any mobile device with a browser, without being limited to a specific app type. This new feature provides prescribers the ability to take care of all of their patients’ needs or emergency situations even after they have left the office. Prescribers can now complete controlled substance prescriptions while on the go or at home and be free from a computer. MDToolbox’s Mobile EPCS allows prescribers to securely electronically send controlled substances whenever and wherever they need to.
“In today’s healthcare world, it’s important to be able to provide solutions that work on a multitude of devices and that are not limited by location,” said Michael Conner, Director of Business Development at MDToolbox. “Adding EPCS capabilities to our mobile solution provides prescriber’s the mobility and flexibility they need.”
MDToolbox-Rx Mobile EPCS allows prescribers to use their mobile devices to:
• e-Prescribe Schedule II-V drugs
• Utilize one easy to use workflow for all prescribing
• Improve security and patient safety
EPCS is becoming more important with laws such as New York’s I-STOP law going into effect. The law mandates that all prescriptions, including controlled substances, must be sent electronically starting March 27, 2015. The ability to electronically send controlled substances using a mobile device provides a convenient, secure solution for prescribers.
