Tampa, Florida, April 9, 2015—InSync Healthcare Solutions, a cloud based integrated EMR and Practice Management software provider for healthcare professionals, today announced that it is now certified for the electronic prescribing of controlled substances services (EPCS). With this certification, InSync can help ensure that providers nationwide are in compliance with e-prescribing and prescription routing services standards for controlled substances. Utilizing this enhancement providers can quickly and securely transmit controlled substance prescriptions within the EMR system. InSync has started implementing providers for EPCS well in advance of the New York e-Prescribing mandate deadline of March 27, 2016.
Prior to EPCS certification, providers were only able to prescribe non controlled substances electronically. The EPCS was proposed by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) as a way for medical practitioners to write electronic prescriptions (eRx) for narcotics and other controlled substances. It also permits pharmacies to fill and dispense the controlled substances after receiving a qualified practitioner’s eRx. For certification, InSync partnered with NewCrop in completing the required identity proofing process, issuance of two-factor authentication, and registering InSync EMR as DEA certified EPCS software with the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement (BNE).
By following EPCS mandates, InSync EMR eprescribing module can help providers and pharmacists by reducing paperwork and costs in addition to curbing prescription fraud and forgery. Patient care is also improved by limiting the risk of adverse reactions and prescription drug abuse by keeping electronic tabs on patient prescription records.
“The InSync Team is excited to enable our provider community to be completely independent of paper and fax when prescribing controlled and non-controlled medications.”said Sanjiv Patel, Director of Implementation of InSync Healthcare Solutions.“The response from individual providers regarding the smoothness of the setup process has been positive. We are glad to pass down the value of an easy to use EPCS process to our providers.”
