EPCS Upgrade Scheduled for January 11, 2016


On January 11, 2016 RHS will be upgrading your EMR software. You will see some new screens and other screens which have been modified to conform to EPCS requirements.

Although you will notice these changes on January 11, 2016 we are not actually changing how the orders are sent to your pharmacy, and we are not enforcing dual authentication on that date. This will happen on March 27, 2016 unless we are notified that your facility obtained a waiver.

To be ready for the January 11, 2016 release RHS will be contacting a super-user at your facility to review the modifications.

The following resources are available to familiarize yourself with these changes prior to the January 11, 2016 update:
