E-prescribe a controlled substance
Here’s a look at how easy it is to send a controlled substance e-prescription. Simply select the medication you wish to send, the dose, and enter in the information you would normally include on a written prescription. The patient medication list gets updated automatically. Then to send, enter your PIN and security token and off it goes to the pharmacy.
What is required to set up e-prescribing?
As you sign up for Luminello, all you will need to get started is your:
- DEA & NPI numbers
- Office address, phone and fax
- Smart phone (for security token)
What is EPCS?
E-prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) is the electronic transmission of a prescription for a controlled substance to a pharmacy. Luminello’s EPCS system is certified by SureScripts and meets all Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) requirements, and is available for all 50 states.
The DEA revised its regulations in 2010 to remove restrictions against the use of electronic prescribing for controlled substances. This gave psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners and other prescribers the option of writing prescriptions for controlled substances by paper or through a certified electronic system. And now, many states either require e-prescribing or plan to. As of 2017, EPCS is mandated in Maine, Minnesota, New York, Rhode Island, Virginia and soon Connecticut (January 2018). States that currently have legislation in process include Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.
