Colorado EPCS Mandate

Colorado: 2023 EPCS Mandate for Dentists
& Rural Prescribers

One deadline has passed but dentists, solo practitioners, and rural physicians must use EPCS by July 1st, 2023. Are you prepared?

RXNT Will Help You Comply With EPCS in Colorado

On July 1st, 2023, the Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS) mandate deadline  for dentists, solo practitioners, and prescribers in rural locations will take effect. Originally scheduled for July 1st, 2022, "dentists and practitioners serving rural communities or in a solo practice" will now be required to utilize electronic transmission of prescriptions for schedule II, III, or IV controlled substances in 2023.

Meanwhile, Colorado General Assembly Bill HB18-1279 required physicians, physician assistants, advance practice nurses, podiatrists, and optometrists in Colorado must use electronic methods to prescribe all Schedule II, III, and IV prescriptions as of July 1st, 2021. For more specific information about the Colorado "Electronic Prescribing Controlled Substances" Bill, see the original Colorado State Legislature SB19-079, which details the electronic prescribing requirements and exemptions. To comply with EPCS regulations, prescribers must complete identity proofing, set up a two-factor authentication device, and utilize certified, secure electronic prescription software.

EPCS legislation is crucial to curb the opioid epidemic and safely prescribe, but as of November 2022, almost 30% of all Colorado prescribers are still not enabled for EPCS. Is your practice equipped to handle the requirements?

Since 1999, RXNT has pioneered electronic prescribing software for ambulatory practices and has been EPCS-certified by the DEA since the 2010 legislation was enacted. What's that mean for you? A proven and affordable solution that will have you e-prescribing in 10 business days or less!*

I used RXNT’s EPCS as soon as it became available. It’s a tremendous, tremendous advantage because a patient can call me at two in the morning for a controlled substance and I can send a prescription to a drug store that’s open.

Family Practice Walk-In Clinic

Price is low, and having a phone app is key. The e-prescribing app is FANTASTIC! You can send refills or new prescriptions easily from your phone, and also see any signed notes if you have questions to consult before prescribing.

Jena Jamison, MD

I use RXNT software for controlled substance prescribing [and] it has enabled me to comply with state requirements... My patients really appreciate the convenience and not having to hang on to a hard copy prescription.
