Can controlled substance prescriptions be electronically transmitted (e-prescribed)?

0

The Georgia Pharmacy Practice Act and Georgia State Board of Pharmacy rules allow for the electronic prescribing of non-controlled substance prescription medications and controlled substance schedules III-V. However, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) currently does not allow for electronic prescribing of any controlled substance medications. Georgia anticipates the DEA will address electronic prescribing in the near future, but no specific timeframe has been identified.
