Transmission of Scheduled Drugs

AdvantageERx is Compulink‚Äôs new direct ePrescribing interface with Surescripts and First Databank.  NewCrop is the legacy E-Prescribing solution.

Due to DEA and Subscripts requirements, scheduled drugs (under the Controlled Substances Act) may not be transmitted through the NewCrop interface. They must be printed out, manually signed and manually faxed to the pharmacy.

EPCS is available through AdvantageERx.

Schedule II drugs, such as Percodan, have always required a print and manual signature (often called a 'wet' signature). Although the ability to transmit Schedule III, IV and V drugs has varied by state, Surescripts has mandated that all scheduled drugs are handled in the same way. All scheduled drugs must be printed out, manually signed and faxed at this time.

Advantage Medication records with a DEA Class Code assigned are not included in the Denominator calculation for Meaningful Use Core Set 4.
