WCH together with DrFirst supports I-STOP!
Put an I-STOP to the controlled Substance Abuse Epidemic in New York and nation wide. The I-STOP Act, passed in New York, is the first piece of statewide legislation enacted in order to help combat the rising rates of prescription drug abuse.
Beginning in 2015, New York state providers will be mandated to query the state prescription monitoring program (PMP) and review a patient’s recent medication history prior to writing any prescriptions for Schedule II, III, or IV controlled substances. This will give providers real-time information regarding a patient’s medication history, helping to detect potential drug shoppers and prescription drug abusers.
Efective March 27, 2015 all prescriptions for legend drugs and Schedule II, III, IV, and V controlled substances must be sent electronically. This will provide greater security measures around potential tampering or fraudulent activity for all prescription drugs.
DrFirst is fully equipped to deploy EPCS Gold SM 2.0, the first-ever fully compliant solution for sending electronic prescriptions of controlled substances, in the state of New York upon enablement by pharmacies, which is anticipated shortly. EPCS Gold 2.0 builds on Rcopia®, DrFirst’s award-winning e-prescribing system, allowing providers to send both legend and controlled drug prescriptions electronically. EPCS Gold 2.0 is fully compliant and secure.
WCH iSmart EHR is fully compatible with Dr First E- prescribing solutions and can help you begin using the software immediately to be prepared for changes that are coming up in 2015 for prescribing controlled substances.
