Utah EPCS Enforcement Delayed—Get Compliant Before Penalties Kick In
The Utah compliance deadline has been delayed temporarily, but it's crucial to get compliant now. Are you prepared for EPCS?
RXNT Will Help You Comply With EPCS in Utah
As of January 1st, 2022 all Schedule II-V controlled substance prescriptions must be transmitted electronically to pharmacies in Utah. Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS) mandates and legislation is crucial to curb the opioid epidemic and safely prescribe prescriptions. As of November 2022, 20% of Utah prescribers still are not enabled for EPCS. Is your practice equipped to handle the requirements?
Despite the 2022 deadline that "requires most prescriptions for controlled substances to be issued electronically (e-prescribing)," the Utah Department of Commerce's Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL) temporarily suspended enforcement and compliance actions until further notice.
For more specific information about the Utah Controlled Substances Act, see the original Utah State Legislature Code Section 58-37-22, 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.
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!*
