One Time Passwords for EPCS/DEA Prescription Orders

ADL Data has added Onetime Passwords to their Electronic Prescribing software. This allows physicians to electronically sign electronic Rx Orders for Prescriptions and DEA medications. The passwords are generated on a Hybrid PKI/OTP Token (Fob) that supports both password display and USB connection.

A one-time password (OTP) is a password that is valid for only one login session or transaction, on a computer system or other digital device. OTPs avoid a number of shortcomings that are associated with traditional (static) password-based authentication; the one time password is guaranteed to meet the 2-FA requirements as it meets both:

  1. Factor 1: Something a person has (such as a small keyring fob device with the OTP calculator built into it, or a smartcard or specific cellphone) and
  2. Factor 2: Something the user knows (such as a PIN).

The EPCS feature eliminates the need to print controlled substance prescriptions simplifying the process for physicians, nurses and pharmacists. ePrescribing DEA drugs eliminates the possible misuse of printed prescriptions.
