Practice Fusion expands EPCS availability
We are excited to announce that e-prescribing for controlled substances (EPCS) is available for Practice Fusion customers across the country.
What is EPCS?
E-Prescribing of controlled substances, or EPCS, is the electronic transmission of a prescription for controlled substance to a pharmacy. In 2010, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) revised its regulations to give health care providers the choice of writing prescriptions for controlled substances via paper or through a certified electronic system. Practice Fusion’s EPCS module is certified and meets all DEA requirements.
