Use DEA-approved credentials for Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS)

EPCS is a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) regulation that allows prescribers and pharmacies to process prescriptions for controlled substances.  Under EPCS, prescribers use identity-based certificates to digitally sign ePrescriptions and pharmacies can validate those signatures to ensure authenticity before fulfilling a prescription for a controlled substance.  

IdenTrust EPCS solutions simplify EPCS compliance while allowing eHR/eMR partners to select authentication methods and implementation options that work for their application architecture and customer needs.  IdenTrust offers IdenTrust Global Common (IGC) certificates with credentials for EPCS usage, in accordance with DEA-compliant rules.

IdenTrust also provides services that support the Health Information Exchange (HIE) and DirectTrust® Partnership for Patients Program designed to ensure patient privacy and facilitate exchange of medical records within a secure network.  See DirectTrust® Compliant Solutions below for more information. 

Prescribers: Your eHR/eMR provider may require you to purchase a specific certificate and/or hardware type to use with your eHR/eMR application.  Our Certificate Selection Wizard will assist you in selecting the products you need.  Select BUY NOW if you are ready to purchase your certificate with credential.
