TechSoft, Inc. has partnered with IdenTrust to provide identity proofing and issuance of hardware two-factor authentication tokens necessary for EPCS using MDRhythm software.
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 DEA.
EPCS feature within MDRhythm will eliminate need to print prescriptions for controlled substances, improves accuracy, and helps to control the possible misuse of printed prescriptions.
The digital certificate and Token from IdenTrust can be used for MDRhythm and other ePrescribing products on the IdenTrust network.
Choosing Your Certificate
For EPCS Prescribing
Your Partner provides two options:
1. The EPCS Prescriber with Mobile Authentication (Hardware) option allows you to store your certificate on your HID USB token. This will allow you to manage your EPCS Prescriber devices and also perform USB Prescription signing (if your partner application allows this feature). You are required to use an IGC Basic Assurance with Hardware certificate, you can select this option when you press the BUY NOW button to access the Certificate Selection Wizard.
2. 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 insert 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.
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.
