New York State ePrescribing Mandate Origin
In 2012, the Internet System for Tracking Over-Prescribing Act, “I-STOP”, was enacted in New York to fight against prescription drug abuse. This legislation directly impacts practitioners in two main ways. First, all New York providers must prescribe and send all legend drugs and controlled substances electronically as of March 27, 2016 (E-Prescribing). Second, all New York providers must query the state Prescription Monitoring Program(PMP) before prescribing controlled substances.

Frequently Asked Questions about New York’s ePrescribe Mandate

Q: What is I-STOP?

The I-STOP Act, enacted in New York in 2012, is the first piece of statewide legislation enacted in order to help combat the rising rates of prescription drug abuse.

Q: I only write a handful of prescriptions each month, does the NYS mandate really apply to me?

Yes. The New York State ePrescribing Mandate took effect on March 27th, 2016, requiring all practitioners (excluding only veterinarians) to send all prescriptions electronically. There are limited exceptions to this mandate, which you should research if you think they may be applicable to your practice.

Q: The ID proofing and credentialing process required for me to prescribe controlled substances electronically (EPCS) is confusing. How does this process work if I use your solution?

Within our solution, Providers can complete ID proofing through our partner, Experian. The process is very easy. All you need to do is provide personal information and answer a few questions to authenticate your identity. After you’ve authenticated your identity, we will issue you your token to prescribe controlled substances. We provide you two options for the token through our partner, SafeNet:  a one-time password device (i.e., a small key fob) or a cryptographic key downloadable to a mobile device. You will use this token to produce a one-time password needed to meet DEA requirements when prescribing a controlled substance.

Q: I have my staff queue up prescriptions for me. Can they queue up prescriptions of controlled substances?

Yes. Staff within a practice are able to edit and queue up prescriptions. However, only a provider can send prescriptions.

Q: What is the state prescription monitoring program (PMP)?

All medical providers must query the state prescription monitoring program (PMP) and review a patient’s recent medication history prior to writing any prescriptions for Schedule II, III, or IV controlled substances. This will give providers real-time information regarding a patient’s medication history, helping to detect potential drug shoppers and prescription drug abusers
