Effective March 27, 2016, all prescriptions in New York State will need to be electronic prescriptions, with limited exceptions. According to the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS), HANYS and its members fully support e-prescribing for both controlled and non-controlled substances and HANYS’ members have been working diligently to prepare for the e-prescribing mandate (HANYS’ Members Readying for e-Prescribing Program: HANYS Working to Address Outstanding Issues).
The New York State Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement (BNE) released a newsletter (BNE Update) focused solely on what providers need to know about electronic prescribing in New York. The BNE newsletter provides an excellent overview of electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) as well as important information about the EPCS registration process in New York. The newsletter also delves into what computer systems are required to be used for e-prescribing and considerations providers should consider in choosing a technology vendor.
