EPCS will allow physicians to seamlessly send controlled substance prescriptions to retail or mail order pharmacies within the same workflow you use to prescribe legend drugs. It makes prescribing more efficient, advances patient medication adherence, and increases convenience for your patients.

The EPCS feature allows physicians to:

  • Prevent prescription drug abuse
  • Avoid patients who are doctor shopping
  • Reduce fraud and abuse ~ no paper prescription pads to be stolen, altered or forged
  • Be audit-ready with management reports
