Staying Compliant in Today’s Ever-Changing EPCS and PDMP Landscape

Join us at eHana 'Ohana as we hear from Patrick Meadows, Senior Channel Manager for DrFirst Rcopia.

The opioid epidemic has risen to the top of the list of critical public health crises facing this country. Electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) is currently mandated in 26 states, and five additional states have proposed legislation. Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) were developed to prevent opioid abuse by facilitating early detection and prevention of abuse while assuring the availability of controlled substances for legitimate pain management purposes. Currently, 44 states require a mandatory query of their PDMP database.Staying Compliant in Today’s Ever-Changing EPCS and PDMP Landscape will discuss today’s regulatory landscape and what you can do to ensure compliance. Learn about Massachusetts' requirements, how PDMPs are making a difference in the fight against opioid abuse, and how your in-workflow access to PDMP data saves you time and helps to provide better care.
