DrFirst is the industry leader in medication management and is the trusted partner to over 350 EHRs. CSMS has partnered with DrFirst because their applications, like iPrescribe, consistently pass stringent audits and certifications with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to be compliant for both legend drugs and controlled substances. They have joined us in the fight against the opioid epidemic by assuring streamlined access to our state’s PDMP, Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS), to improve the quality of patient care we offer and to reduce prescription abuse, addiction, and overdose.
To help our members efficiently meet our state’s reporting laws around daily documentation of transactions for controlled substances (Schedule II-V) to CPMRS, we recommend all our members download iPrescribe from your app store. Regardless of whether your EHR system already can e-prescribe controlled substances, you never know if something may happen that may result in system failure or non-compliance to DEA requirements. By having a trustworthy backup system in place, you can be assured that you will not be left without a viable alternative that will ensure your continued compliance with the reporting laws. iPrescribe allows prescribers to create electronic controlled substances and seamlessly integrates with CPMRS regardless of your practice’s EHR system.
