E-Prescribing of Controlled Substances Required
House Bill 2174 from the 2019 legislative agenda requires electronic prescribing of all controlled substances (EPCS) unless a waiver is granted. The requirement coincides with Medicare’s electronic prescription requirement.
EPCS is required unless a waiver is granted. Information for waivers has not yet been released.
Check with your electronic health record (EHR) vendor to see if it can set you up for EPCS. Sometimes the EPCS functionality can be set up within a day (depending on the vendor). If you don't have an EHR vendor, search for standalone e-prescribing software. The vendor can assist you with EPCS setup.
