Event 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 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.

EPCS Click for Control Campaign "Deeper Dive into HB 2075" Webinar Series
The EPCS Click for Control campaign presents a series of webinars to take a deeper dive into HB 2075. The webinar series will educate and help Arizona prescribers and practices navigate House Bill (HB) 2075, understand it requirements and mandates under Arizona law.
