FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AOD Software, delivering the industry’s leading integrated software solution to senior care providers, today announced that its Answers™ software suite has been approved for electronic prescribing of controlled substances having achieved DEA EPCS certification. AOD is the first in long-term care to receive this designation. The audit was completed by ComplySmart, whose audit process has been approved by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
“With state regulations moving toward requiring electronic exchange of prescriptions – specifically, controlled substances – long-term care organizations will need to be ready,” said Doc DeVore, director of Clinical Informatics and Industry Relations at AOD Software. “We enjoyed partnering with ComplySmart to successfully and efficiently complete the audit to ensure our customers are not only DEA compliant but have the tools they need to improve workflow and security around medication management processes.”
As part of the audit, AOD’s Integrated Medication Management software successfully initiated controlled substance electronic prescriptions and provided evidence verifying a total of 55 requirements had been met in accordance with the Controlled Substances Act.
“Working closely with AOD, we knocked out the requisites one by one and ensured the software met all DEA requirements,” said Russell Rowe, a principal at ComplySmart. “It was great to work with a company who embraced this process and innovation.”
Using AOD’s simplified data entry screens and increased security around prescriber login and e-signatures, senior care organizations can improve resident safety and streamline documentation. With accurate, easy reporting tools at their fingertips, organizations can virtually eliminate medication-related errors and reduce liability and regulatory compliance exposure.
