iBeta is now authorized to review, verify and certify that particular electronic prescribers or electronic pharmacy applications meet the requirements of DEA’s regulations governing EPCS.
The DEA-EPCS program allows practitioners, hospitals and pharmacies the option to utilize electronic prescriptions for controlled substances. The revised rule (June 1, 2010) allows the use of a biometric as a substitute for a hard token or a password.
The DEA notes that practitioners might find strong passwords more burdensome than a biometric or token over the long run. “Doctors and other prescribers are much less likely to leave their biometric at home, but if they forget their token I guess they will need to switch back to a pad for the day. Any technology that makes a physician’s day easier, benefits both the doctor and the patient.” said Dr. Wilson, iBeta’s Director of Biometrics.
