Steps to set-up Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS) or ePrescribing (eRx):
1. Visit your Practice Dashboard to ensure that your identity has been verified.
eRx users should select the e-Prescribing tile and check line 4 ("Set up authentication and verify your identity with ID.me") to see if it is marked "Complete."
EPCS users should select the Controlled Substances eRx tile and check line 2 ("Set up authentication and verify your identity with ID.me") to see if it is marked "Complete."
If the identity line is not marked complete, you may still need to verify your identity.
2. Get access from a local admin.
If you are the only admin, you must at least temporarily promote another user to admin. After that admin has granted you access, you can remove their admin access.
3. Complete a medical credential check.
If you have never prescribed controlled substances through Practice Fusion, your medical credentials may need to be checked before the process is complete. Credential checks may take up to 7 business days.
