Comprehensive, Proven Industry Solution for Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances

Health IT Vendors Need an EPCS Solution

Nearly half of all states, as well as the federal government, are pursuing or have adopted legislation requiring electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS).  These legislative mandates present a challenge for electronic health records (EHR) and electronic medical records (EMR) systems that now must incorporate complex technologies in order to meet the Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) requirements for EPCS.  Healthcare providers expect their EHR/EMR systems to help reconcile their medication administration without fragmented workflows.  Health IT vendors must deliver a compliant, comprehensive, easy-to-use solution that seamlessly maintains the user experience while easing the burden of additional technology.  Exostar’s ProviderPass allows health IT vendors to achieve the objective.

ProviderPass Meets All EPCS Functional Requirements

Enabling EPCS is complicated.  With ProviderPass, health IT vendors can easily address all DEA EPCS requirements, including:

  • Identity Proofing – Healthcare providers can verify their identities and eligibility to prescribe controlled substances by providing necessary information and documents via certified mail or the Internet, or by participating in a webcam proofing session with certified Exostar agents.
  • Two-Factor Authentication – From hardware- or software-based one-time password (OTP) devices to push authentication to a mobile device, ProviderPass supports multiple modalities for the two-factor authentication that must precede access to EPCS functionality. Providers can even switch modalities on-the-go without re-proofing.
  • Digital Signature – ProviderPass utilizes cloud-based digital certificates – rather than hardware-based certificates – to apply digital signatures, reducing the management burden on health IT vendors and healthcare providers.
