 E-Prescribing controlled substances
I noticed that the video segment on Securing Access to Medical Records on the Dell webinar site highlights many necessary security measures needed for successful security implementation of EMR, however the expert did not address the directly related topic of E Prescribing and the controversial issue of E- Prescribing controlled substances. Looking for some specific info on what types of added security measures, authentication should be in place for EPCS (Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances)?

Surescripts announced that they would support this last month: http://www.surescripts.com/news-and-events/press-releases/2011/september/sept12-epcs.aspx ARLINGTON, Va. - Sept. 12, 2011 - Surescripts today announced that it has upgraded its nationwide network to support electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS). In addition to its deployment of the network upgrade, Surescripts has begun its initial certification of prescriber software vendors and pharmacy applications for EPCS. Certified vendors and pharmacies have, in turn, begun the initial deployment of EPCS in the United States. The deployment involves a select number of certified and audited vendors and their users located in states where EPCS is legal.
