Staging a successful launch: A New York hospital shares its EPCS success story

Electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) delivers a number of benefits. However, in order to enable EPCS, healthcare providers must meet DEA requirements that can be disruptive and cumbersome to implement.

In a recent webinar, Imprivata customer, Laura Josephson, RN, Clinical Informatics Manager and EPCS project lead at WCA Hospital in Jamestown, NY, speaks about the strategies and technologies her hospital used, to become one of the first healthcare organizations in New York to successfully implement EPCS. In addition, product manager, Dan Borgasano answers questions about Imprivata Confirm ID™, the software WCA Hospital used to meet DEA requirements for identity proofing, enabling supervised enrollment and enforcing two-factor authentication, while maintaining a comprehensive audit trail throughout the entire process. Throughout the program, the speakers address how to:

  • Eliminate dual prescribing workflows and improve provider satisfaction
  • Meet Meaningful Use e-prescribing requirements
  • Increase patient satisfaction, by eliminating repeat visits to the doctor and reducing long wait times at the pharmacy
