EPCS requires medical practitioners to use two-factor authentication to sign prescriptions for medical narcotics issued in digital form.
To comply with EPCS and enable the issuing of e-prescriptions for controlled substances, hospitals and healthcare institutions must instate EPCS-compliant processes certified by an independent third party, including the use of two-factor authentication (2FA) when signing e-prescriptions for controlled substances.
