EPCS - Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances
Save time and money by using MDToolbox’s Certified EPCS solution
MDToolbox-Rx is fully certified to Send Controlled Substance Prescriptions Electronically. As e-Prescribing becomes the norm,
the need for electronically prescribing Schedule II-V drugs is becoming greater.
The Federal DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) requires that EPCS software meet strict requirements and go through a third-party audit to
check that these requirements are met. The MDToolbox e-Prescribing system has both been audited by a Qualified DEA Auditor and
Certified by Surescripts® to Electronically Send Controlled Substances. We were the 4th eRx program in the U.S. to achieve this
With MDToolbox EPCS, you can:
e-Prescribe Schedule II-V drugs
Utilize one easy to use workflow for all prescribing
Improve security and patient safety
Integrate your State PMP (in most States)
How Does EPCS Work?
The DEA requires a 2-Factor Authentication sign off, meaning when a prescriber electronically sends a controlled substance
prescription they must sign it using something they know (e.g. a password) and something they have (e.g. a token). Each prescriber
who wishes to e-Prescribe controlled substances must go through an identity proofing and authentication process in order to receive a token.
This ensures the system is secure and safe!
Where is EPCS allowed?
E-Prescribing of Controlled Substances is allowed in all 50 states.
