Partner Bio

Health Information Management Systems (HiMS) and your facility has partnered with IdenTrust to provide identity proofing and issuance of hardware two-factor authentication tokens necessary for EPCS.

By providing the required information to IdenTrust, you will have the ability to complete remote identity proofing, and two-factor authentication for two years, as required by both the DEA and NYS EPCS mandates.

The digital certificate token from IdenTrust can be used for HiMS and other ePrescribing products on the IdenTrust network.

Choosing Your Certificate

For EPCS Prescribing

If you will be using credentials 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.

Important Information

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.

Certificate must be retrieved using Internet Explorer. Once the certificate is retrieved, your credential may be then be used with most common browsers.
