Prepare for I-STOP. Request a Demo Today.

Talk to an e-prescribing expert to learn how Rcopia and EPCS Gold 2.0 can help you become compliant with I-STOP before the deadline.

New York providers must e-prescribe legend drugs and controlled substances, per New York’s electronic prescribing mandate, also known as I-STOP (Internet System for Tracking Over-Prescribing). This e-prescribing requirement was passed by the New York State legislature to help combat the rising rates of prescription drug abuse in New York.

By e-prescribing legend drugs and controlled substances, providers can protect against drug misuse and diversion while improving their clinical workflows, and ultimately, help improve patient outcomes.

DrFirst can enable not only physician practices, hospitals and other acute care organizations, but also EHR/HIS vendors to comply with New York’s e-prescribing mandate and experience the benefits of universal e-prescribing. Sign up for a demo to get started today.
