Can You Spot the Doctor Shopper?

E-Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS)

EPCSGoldSM enables clinical staff to quickly and easily identify doctor shoppers to ensure the right medications get to the right patient. Controlled substance e-prescribing is growing at a phenomenal rate, bolstered by government and healthcare industry awareness that electronically prescribing controlled substances is a first-line defense against the nation’s prescription drug abuse epidemic. Providers in every U.S. state can now actively e-prescribe controlled substances through independent pharmacies as well as with national drug chains like Rite-Aid, Walgreens, and CVS.

EPCSGold was the first controlled substance e-prescribing solution in the country. Today, EPCSGold is integrated within more than 260 EMR/EHR/HIS systems. When combined with Rcopia discharge e-prescribing, EPCSGold presents a seamless, easy-to-use electronic prescribing workflow for both legend drugs and controlled substances.
