For Providers
Epic Electronic Prescribing Controlled Substances to require additional security

Currently, Corewell Health East providers must verify their identity with Duo multifactor authentication (MFA) when prescribing controlled substances electronically in Epic. 

The DEA requires two separate authentication factors when signing a controlled substance prescription to ensure the right person electronically prescribes the controlled substance. To comply with the DEA, starting Tuesday, Oct. 3, Corewell Health East providers will be prompted to enter their Epic password when electronically sending the prescription, followed by verifying their identity using MFA via DUO.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with the DS Service Desk.
