EPCS Compliance

What is the EPCS Regulation?

e-Prescription - EPCS Compliance

Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS) is a regulation issued by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) requiring medical practitioners to use two-factor authentication to sign prescriptions for medical narcotics issued in digital form.

In order to gain EPCS compliance and enable the issuing of e-prescriptions for controlled substances, hospitals and healthcare institutions must instate EPCS-compliant processes certified by an independent third party, including the use of two-factor authentication (2FA) when signing e-prescriptions for controlled substances.

SafeNet two-factor authentication solutions let hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) embrace EPCS quickly, without changing their current infrastructure.

Offering both hardware and software-based EPCS-compliant tokens, Gemalto provides practitioners a frictionless authentication experience, while providing IT staff with frictionless management through fully automated workflows.
