PrognoCIS 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 seamlessly complete remote identity proofing that will be valid for two years.
Through PrognoCIS, now you can seamlessly and securely transmit ePrescriptions to pharmacies for DEA class I, II, III, IV, and V. Exchanging prescription information electronically between physicians and pharmacies improves the accuracy of the prescribing process and saves time. The new EPCS feature eliminates the need to print controlled substance prescriptions thus offering great relief for physicians and patients and invariably helps in control of possible misuse of printed prescriptions.
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.
