Kettering Health Network is implementing e-prescribing of controlled substances network-wide on December 17.
Why are we doing this?
In response to the current opioid crisis, the federal government has mandated that by January 1, 2021, all physicians and mid-level providers will be required to e-prescribe any controlled substance.
Our providers will be able to complete this by using a hands-free, second-sign push token technology that provides fast, automated authentication. This means our patients will not have to go to the providers’ office to obtain their printed prescription, and the provider can send the prescription to their pharmacy electronically. Electronic prescribing of controlled substances will also reduce the likelihood of drug diversion and reduce the threat of a health care data breach.
How will this affect you?
The Drug Enforcement Administration requires that each provider be enrolled in person (no remote ID proofing is allowed). Click here to view a schedule of enrollment fairs.
