We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 14.19 or "OP 19". OP 19 is a member of the certified OP 14 family of products (official version is 14.19.1), which you may see in your software (such as in Help > About) and in the Help Center tabs labeled 14.19. You may also notice that the version number in content and videos may not match the version of your software, and some procedural content may not match the workflow in your software. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make these enhancements.

EPCS Medications

Version 14.19

Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS)

Federal law passed in 2010 has allowed physicians to prescribe Schedule II through Schedule V controlled substances electronically. Since the passing of this law all 50 states and the District of Columbia have moved to allow for EPCS. The one exception is that Kansas and Vermont allow for EPCS of Schedule III-V but not Schedule II controlled substances. The I-STOP Act in New York State requires all providers to prescribe all drugs that require a prescription including controlled substances electronically starting March 27, 2016.

Office Practicum offers EPCS to all clients where it is allowed by law.
