The opioid epidemic is among the most serious issues faced by the United States healthcare system. Combatting the opioid crisis is a coin with two sides. On one side, those with substance abuse disorders must be able to receive the treatment and resources they need to heal.

The resounding purpose of EPCS is ultimately to keep a halter on the ongoing opioid epidemic, and it is one of the most critical tools we must face this challenge. This eBook breaks down the need and requirements for EPCS solutions, explaining government legislature, DEA audits, and security measures.

From its start, Prior Authorization within healthcare billing quickly became one of the most integral parts of the modern revenue cycle. Today, prior authorization is used by payers to lower the cost of care for patients as well as improve care quality.
