Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS) is a special instance of ePrescribing that provides pharmacies, hospitals, and practitioners a mechanism to use technology for controlled substance prescriptions.

ePrescribing replaces the paper, fax, email, and phone processes for placing prescription orders. For states that have enacted EPCS legislation, ePrescribing is a mandate.

While the types of prescriptions that require electronic transmission vary from state to state, PointClickCare offers a comprehensive solution to support your EPCS needs.
