Below is an excerpt:

7. Keep an eye on state and federal legal developments. In addition to state mandates for electronic prescribing, states are updating their requirements for physicians to check the prescription medicine monitoring program databases, says Kelly. Also, the DEA’s rule allowing EPCS is only an interim final rule, not a final one. It is expected that the DEA will make some changes to the rule in the near future as lessons are learned, which may affect processes and systems, says Cote.
