Imprivata Confirm ID Creates One Seamless Workflow
“Patients are at the center of healthcare, and Forward Advantage and Confirm ID for EPCS allow the patient to have a convenient experience for their prescription the same way they do for non-controlled substances,” says Lee Howard, VP of client services at Forward Advantage.
Be Ahead of State Mandates
When Talafous and her team implemented Confirm ID for EPCS, their main motivation was patient safety and to protect their providers. “With EPCS, you can prevent patients from filling a prescription before a certain date,” she states. “There’s also a max-dose field and other ways to ensure physicians are limiting the amount of narcotics that a patient can have.” She also believes that Confirm ID for EPCS protects the Medical Center too, because it will be prepared in the event EPCS becomes mandated in Ohio. “Ohio is currently not mandated for EPCS, but that could quickly change,” says Talafous. “At any point, we could be told that submissions of controlled substances have to be 100 percent electronic. That’s exactly what happened in New York, so we wanted to be prepared.”
