Yardi® announced that its long term care platform, Optimus EMR has received Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) certification for Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances (EPCS). Yardi added the long-term care system to its Senior Living Suite after its acquisition of Optimus EMR, Inc. in 2015. With the addition of EPCS certification from the DEA, the system adds yet another layer of integrated functionality to the Yardi software lineup.
Optimus EMR has been providing complex clinical charting for long-term post-acute care for 15 year. Its ePrescribing order entry and pharmacy interface system is now in an exclusive group of only a handful of EPCS certified providers.
“Optimus EMR has always been a leader in ePrescribing within LTPAC communities,” said Craig Griffin, Yardi Long Term Care director. “The Optimus EPCS certified release will allow our clients to operate efficiently, safely, and confidently. Our certified care solution provides connectivity between prescribers, pharmacies, and staff that will change the way medications are prescribed and delivered.
The DEA has set forth regulations for electronic prescriptions of controlled substances, including an extensive certification process for EPCS providers. The Drummond Group Inc., a DEA approved auditor and certification body, has certified Optimus EMR Version 8.2 as compliant with DEA IFR 21 CFR 1311 (and 1300, 1304, 1306 by reference).
