New York I-STOP E-Prescribing Mandate Delay: In mid-February a bill passed the NY state Senate and the Assembly to postpone the deadline for mandatory electronic prescribing until next year.

Much to the relief of many NY prescribers the legislation will delay implementation until March 2016. The legislation still awaits the signature of NY Governor Andrew Cuomo. The bill which was sponsored by John McDonald a practicing pharmacist is expected to be signed.

Change to Missouri EPCS Processing Status: According to DrFirst, the Missouri Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs has retracted its guidance that EPCS was legal in the state and therefore, Surescripts has changed the status of the state of Missouri to temporarily suspend EPCS processing.

A rule change to allow EPCS is currently being pursued.Once the rule is finalized and adopted, EPCS processing will resume in Missouri.Until then, providers are being advised to write paper prescriptions for controlled substances.
