Why does EPCS matter?

EPCS was approved by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in 2010 in response to the rising drug crisis in our nation with the primary objective of reducing the potential for diversion, and subsequent abuse, of controlled substances.

Reduces the risk of fraud and abuse

Transmitting electronically there are no more paper prescription pads to purchase, nor will you need to worry about prescriptions being stolen, altered, or forged.

Minimizes exposure to your DEA number

Now that your office is going digital, your DEA number will not be exposed to patients through prescription pads. This almost completely eliminates the potential for DEA number theft at your office.
