E-prescribing is a technology that allows doctors to write and send prescriptions to a pharmacy in an electronic way instead of using printed, handwritten or faxed prescriptions.
In general, any e-prescribing is a stand-alone or integrated application that can help practitioners to improve prescription process and even increase their reimbursement. However, providers should use a qualified e-prescribing system.

Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS) is a robust mechanism to electronically write prescriptions for controlled substances. Adopted identity proofing for EPCS requires two-factor authentication of the prescriber. Therefore, providers have to notify us if they need EPCS functionality.
