Effective March 27th, 2016, the Internet System for Tracking Over-Prescribing (I-STOP) Act requires electronic prescribing of all medications, including controlled substances, in the state of New York. There are many requirements in preparing for Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) and I-STOP.
In this webinar, Lawrence H. Mokhiber, BS, MS, RPh, Executive Secretary, New York State Board of Pharmacy, and William T. Winsley, MS, RPh, Former Executive Director, Ohio State Board of Pharmacy, answer FAQs around I-STOP and DEA requirements for EPCS workflow and process challenges.
Some of the questions that are covered include:
- Where can I obtain information regarding New York State’s requirements for EPCS?
- Can I electronically prescribe controlled substances before it becomes mandated on March 27, 2016?
- Can I send an electronic prescription for a controlled substance to an out-of-state pharmacy?
