All DrChrono customers who need to complete EPCS registration need to complete their identity verification and registration with ID.me.
Setting Up eRx in DrChrono
Registering for eRx is a an easy process that will allow you to send electronic prescriptions for your patients. To start prescribing in DrChrono, you can follow these steps to register for eRx.
Note: The setup process for eRx is also a pre-requisite for EPCS (electronic prescription of controlled substances). You must be on a paid plan type to have the option to e-prescribe medications.
As a best practice, we recommend that you set aside some uninterrupted time to complete the registration process.
Navigating to the eRx Setup Portal
1. To begin the eRx setup process, go to Account in your DrChrono navigation bar and select Account Settings.
2. Within Account Settings, select the eRx Info tab, then click on the green Register to use eRx button.
3. When you hit the Register to use eRx button, a registration page will appear. Please enter in the basic information the form asks for: Name, Address, DOB, SSN, NPI number and DEA number (optional).
4. Once you have entered in your information correctly you will then get five questions to verify your identity. You may skip one question, and will be asked an additional one in place of the skipped question. After you have answered all of the questions, your information will be verified and synced with Surescripts. The processing time for your request may take 1-2 business days. When your request is processed, you will have completed the eRx setup and be able to e-prescribe from your patient's chart.
