GeniusDoc has partnered with IdenTrust to provide a trustworthy base for electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS). Our agreement with them will ensure identity proofing and issuance of digital certificate tokens used to digitally sign and electronically send prescriptions for controlled substances.
By providing the required information to IdenTrust, you will have the ability to complete identity proofing and two-factor authentication for two years, as required by both the DEA and NYS EPCS mandates. More states are actively pursuing EPCS to become mandatory in the near future.
Choosing Your Certificate
For EPCS Prescribing
If you will be physically signing using a HID USB token with your certificate for EPCS prescribing, you are required to use an IGC Basic Assurance with Hardware certificate. You can select this certificate option when you choose BUY NOW to access the Certificate Selection Wizard.
For Identity-Proofing Only
If you will not be submitting EPCS-compliant prescriptions, or your EHR/EMR provides non-IdenTrust tokens, you can opt to purchase an IGC Basic Assurance Software certificate that can be used for identity-proofing only. You may choose this certificate option when you choose BUY NOW to access the Certificate Selection Wizard.
In the case where hardware is issued, ONLY THE SUBSCRIBER OF THE CERTIFICATE SHOULD HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THEIR TOKEN – In all cases, THE DIGITAL CERTIFICATE IS YOUR FORM OF IDENTIFICATION, SIMILAR TO YOUR PASSPORT OR DRIVER’S LICENSE. Under the IGC Certificate Policy, it is our responsibility as an Authorized Certification Authority to revoke the certificate in a case of hardware loss or disclosure or compromise of the private key or any certificate related password to anyone other than the subscriber.
