eMedicalFusion, LLC has partnered with IdenTrust to provide identity proofing and issuance of digital certificates and hardware tokens used to digitally sign and electronically send DEA prescriptions.
With eMedicalFusion, you can now securely transmit ePrescriptions to pharmacies for Controlled Substances (DEA Classes I, II, III, IV, and V). Exchanging prescription information electronically between physicians and pharmacies improves the accuracy of the prescribing process and saves time. The EPCS feature eliminates the need to print controlled substance prescriptions, streamlines the process for physicians, and helps to control the possible misuse of printed prescriptions. The feature enforces two-factor authentication when electronically prescribing Controlled Substances as required by the DEA.
