EPCS Gold 2.0 Controlled Substance E-prescribing for Acute Care


E-prescribing of Controlled Substances for Acute Care

EPCS Gold 2.0 enables clinical staff to quickly and easily identify doctor shoppers to ensure the right medications get to the right patient. Controlled substance e-prescribing is growing at a phenomenal rate, bolstered by government and healthcare industry awareness that electronically prescribing controlled substances is a first-line defense against the nation’s prescription drug abuse epidemic. Providers in every U.S. state can now actively e-prescribe controlled substances through independent pharmacies as well as with national drug chains like Rite-Aid, Walgreens, and CVS.

EPCS Gold is the first DEA-approved controlled substance e-prescribing solution in the country. EPCS Gold is also integrated within more than 150 EMR/EHR/HIS systems.
