2021 EPCS Mandate
The Deadline is September 30th, 2021. Are You Ready?
RXNT Will Help You Comply in Washington
On September 30th, 2021, all Schedule II–V controlled substances and medications must use electronic prescribing to pharmacies in Washington state, and violation of the ruling could result in civil penalties for your practice. For more specific information about the Washington EPCS ruling, see RCW 69.50.312 from the Washington State Legislature. At the same time, healthcare providers with 10 or more prescribers must demonstrate that their EHR system fully integrates with the Washington State Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP). For more specific information about the PMP/PDMP ruling, see RCW 70.225.090.
These requirements were originally set to take effect on January 1, 2021. However, in accordance with the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on healthcare providers, the WA Department of Health issued a blanket waiver delaying the deadlines to September 30, 2021.
