What is EPCS?
e-Prescribing of controlled substances, or EPCS, is the electronic transmission of a prescription for controlled substance to a pharmacy. In 2010, the Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) revised its regulations to give physicians the choice of writing prescriptions for controlled substances by paper or through a certified electronic system
