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.

Understanding the New EPCS Mandates and Regulations Webinar
The Understanding the New Regulations and Mandates webinar explains what you need to know to prepare practices and prescribers to meet the January 1, 2020 Arizona EPCS mandates.
