GeniusDoc - Prescriber Identity Proofing and EPCS Token Purchase

GeniusDoc has teamed up with IdenTrust to provide a trustworthy base for electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS). Our agreement with them will ensure identity proofing and issuance of digital certificate tokens used to digitally sign and electronically send prescriptions for controlled substances. By providing the required information to IdenTrust, you will have the ability to complete identity proofing and two-factor authentication for two years, as required by both the DEA and NYS EPCS mandates. More states are actively pursuing EPCS to become mandatory in the near future.

To complete your identity proofing:

Initial sign up on-line takes about 15 minutes. You will need to provide your name, address, phone number, date of birth, Social Security number, credit card number, and driver's license.

After registering, your token and an Activation Code are sent by mail within a week.

Please note: ONLY THE SUBSCRIBER OF THE CERTIFICATE SHOULD HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THEIR TOKEN - THE DIGITAL CERTIFICATE IS YOUR FORM OF IDENTIFICATION, SIMILAR TO YOUR PASSPORT OR DRIVER’S LICENSE. Under the IGC Certificate Policy, it is our responsibility as an Authorized Certification Authority to revoke the certificate in a case of loss or disclosure of the private key (Password) to anyone other than the subscriber.
