Welcome NemoursOne Users!
In order to enable EPCS, the DEA requires utilization of two-factor authentication (2FA).
Nemours has partnered with IdenTrust to provide NemoursOne prescribers with the necessary digital certificate that they will use to sign controlled substance electronic prescriptions.
The first step in this process is identity proofing which is conducted via the link below. You will need to provide your driver's license or state ID information and a valid personal credit card. Once your identity is validated, IdenTrust will mail an approval code to your personal address. Prescribers will then bring this approval code to their respective command center to complete the process. At this point they will be issued their ActivID smart card and set up their PIN.
Choosing Your Certificate
IdenTrust Global Common Certificates (IGC) IdenTrust Global Common (IGC) digital certificates are cross-certified with the U.S. Federal Bridge Certification Authority, enabling trust, and interoperability with a wide range of systems and applications.
Each individual IGC Certificate includes both a certificate for authentication/digital signing and a certificate for encryption.
For EPCS prescribing, you are required to use an IGC Prescribing | Basic Assurance | Individual Identity | Software Storage certificate. You can select this certificate option when you choose BUY NOW to access the Certificate Selection Wizard.
To learn more about IGC Certificates, please visit EPCS for Prescribers.
Please note for EPCS signatures, utilization of two-factor authentication (2FA) is required by the DEA.
Please note: ONLY THE SUBSCRIBER OF THE CERTIFICATE SHOULD HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THEIR TOKEN - 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 loss or disclosure of the private key (Password) to anyone other than the subscriber.
