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
The EPCS Prescriber with Mobile Authentication (Software) option allows you to store your certificate in your browser. This will allow you to manage your EPCS Prescriber devices via your web browser without having to obtain a HID USB token. You are required to use an IGC Basic Assurance with Software certificate, you can select this option when you press the BUY NOW button to access the Certificate Selection Wizard. This option also performs any vetting that may be required by your provider.
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.
