Description

The electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) is now required in Arizona for any prescription of a Schedule II controlled substance that is an opioid. To increase EPCS in Arizona and prepare Arizona prescribers for the new state requirements, mandated by the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act, Health Current has launched the 2019 EPCS Click for Control Campaign.

Arizona Opioid E-Prescribing Requirement
HB 2075 signed by Governor Ducey on February 14, 2019, amends the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act and requires all Arizona providers to electronically prescribe any Schedule II controlled substance that is an opioid by January 1, 2020.

2019 EPCS Click for Control Campaign Webinar Series
The 2019 EPCS Click for Control campaign presents a series of webinars to educate and help Arizona prescribers and practices navigate the adoption of EPCS, increase Arizona’s national EPCS ranking and contribute to the reduction of opioid abuse disorder.

CSPMP: Controlled Substance Prescription Monitoring Program Webinar
The CSPMP: Controlled Substance Prescription Monitoring Program webinar describes what you need to know to meet the CSPMP legislative requirements that went into effect on October 16, 2017: “Arizona prescribers are required to access information from the Arizona CSPMP before a prescription for an opioid analgesic or benzodiazepine-controlled substance is generated”.

In this webinar:

  • Review the legislative requirements for using the PMP
  • Explore a PMP Patient Report
  • Discuss revisions to statutes that apply to prescribers and dispensers of controlled substances
  • Introduce additional resources available to assist medical professionals and the public affected by the opioid epidemic

“The 2019 Click for Control Campaign is a shared commitment between Health Current, Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and the Arizona Board of Pharmacy to manage and coordinate the statewide 2019 EPCS Click for Control Education Campaign.”
