DrFirst was the first company in the nation to have a certified EPCS solution, and laid the groundwork for electronic prescribing of controlled substances several years before the DEA rule. Thanks to a federally funded three-year pilot grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to the Department of Public Health in Massachusetts, DrFirst in 2010 developed, tested and implemented an electronic prescribing program for controlled substances in Western Massachusetts, effectively allowing the ruling of EPCS to pass.
Today, our EPCS GoldSM system meets all of the DEA’s requirements, as well as Surescripts’ strict certification processes. We are committed to further leading the industry in best practices for the quality, usability and security of controlled substance e-prescribing.
