Pricing

ISMS members: Free
Non-ISMS members: $75.00

Course Description

Electronic prescribing (“e-prescribing”) of controlled substances for all schedules of drugs is now allowed in every state in the U.S., including Washington, D.C. While e-prescribing is now the preferred method of prescribing medications among the vast majority of prescribers, adoption of e-prescribing for controlled substances has been slow due to a number of factors, from the complexity and cost of implementation, to concerns about security. Do you know about legal requirements for identity proofing for e-prescribing? What new requirements are there for e-prescribing?

Join ISMS and retired Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) veteran Demetra Ashley for a discussion of authentication and e-prescribing.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this learning activity, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the process of identity proofing, including explaining what it means and describing regulatory expectations.
  • List the requirements for obtaining an authentication credential for Individual Practitioners and Institutional Practitioners
  • Discuss implementation of the Support for Patients and Community Act (Support Act) 2021 requirements for e-prescribing and how it will affect medical practice.
  • Describe the clinical and administrative benefits of e-prescribing.
