Providing integrated prescription validation services

Pharmacy applications enabled for Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances (EPCS) must meet strict U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) requirements.

Applications must be verified by a third-party auditor to follow a DEA mandated process, which includes the verification of digital signatures and certificate validations. These validations must be performed in compliance with National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) requirements.

IdenTrust solutions fully meet identity-specific DEA requirements for pharmacy applications and IdenTrust cross-certified Device Certificates are ideal for digitally signing incoming EPCS messages. Digital signatures created with IdenTrust certificates can be fully relied upon by U.S. Federal agencies.
