There is an epidemic of addiction, abuse and diversion of controlled substances in this country and worldwide. Since 90% of all physicians write prescriptions for controlled substances, this industry briefing is designed to provide meaningful data and up-to-date resources to assist physicians and members of the healthcare industry in understanding the benefits of electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS). This paper will also address some common misconceptions which have unnecessarily hindered adoption.
