03/28/2016 - PrescribersConnection®, LLC, the nation’s only Long Term Post-Acute Care focused ePrescribing solutions provider announces the latest release of PrescribersOrders certified for electronic prescribing of controlled substances. PrescribersConnection has again earned Drummond Group certification for its web based ePrescribing software, PrescribersOrders by PrescribersConnection. This time for electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS). To earn certification, PrescribersOrders was audited to ensure that it complied with the requirements delineated in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) EPCS Final Rule (Interim), 21 CFR Part 1300, 1304, 1306, and 1311. Drummond Group’s EPCS certification process, one of the first approved by the DEA, is designed to review prescriber and pharmacy applications with EPCS extensions for compliance against the DEA EPCS Final Rule.
Jerry Orris, Director of Technology at PrescribersConnection stated, “With PrescribersOrders, physicians now have a single web based application allowing them to view their patient’s critical clinical information as well as approve and create controlled and non-controlled medication orders for all of their patients, even among differing facility software vendor locations. Our EPCS certification for PrescribersOrders enhances the physician’s utilization of our LTC network, fully immersing them in the patient’s continuum of care.”
This latest release to our existing physician ePrescribing software, PrescribersOrders, not only allows for secure and certified EPCS but also allows the physician to electronically communicate between facilities and pharmacies, approve medication orders, and receive pertinent patient information in real time with a single login utilizing the PrescribersConnection LTC Network. Our proprietary LTC Network is utilized by the nation’s most advanced facility and pharmacy software vendors focused on technological innovation and patient medication safety. It is ONE connection providing access to ALL prescribers, facilities, and pharmacies within the PrescribersConnection Network.
“At Drummond Group, we ensure the EPCS certification process is carried out with integrity and strict interpretation to the regulations,” said Aaron Gomez, Drummond Group’s EPCS Program Director and Chief Scientist. Being one of the first certification organizations to have an EPCS certification process reviewed and approved by DEA (approved July 2012), we take our responsibility seriously knowing there is a lot of confusion in the marketplace when it comes to EPCS certification. For instance, we provide depth in understanding the regulations, for example, which certificate authorities or credential providers are approved, and what does the ‘processing integrity’ clarification published by DEA mean and how it may apply. Our certification process will make sure you understand these and all requirements so you can move forward with your implementation with confidence.”
