Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS):  The electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) is now legal in Arizona and many states require or will require EPCS for any prescription of a Schedule II opioid.  To increase EPCS in Arizona and prepare Arizona prescribers for the new state requirement, mandated by the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act, Health Current has launched the Click for Control Campaign.  All Arizona prescribers will be required to electronically prescribe Schedule II controlled substances by January 1, 2020.  Click here to go to Health Current’s EPCS Controlled Substance page.
