"Practice Fusion says "sole practitioners may find this challenging."

I had a similar issue with practice fusion when NY went electronic for controlled substances.

The recommendation was to give "anyone" a profile to access the verification process.

I made a colleague an appropriate profile. He entered my system (under supervision). He validated my application.
Once I was validated, I inactivated his profile.

But yes. it was a pain!

Subject: e rx controlled substances

so Maine now requires e-rx for controlled substances.. Sigh 50.00 a month to the EMR vendor. But tonight I find out that it is a federal DEA rule that you must have an administrator on your emr approve you to do this( can IMPs do this for each other??). Practice Fusion says "sole practitioners may find this challenging.IS ANYONE PAYING ATTENTION?? WHERE is the AAFP? I have been prescribing controlled substances for yrs but cannot do it through the computer- for which there is no evidence anyway- AND I must pay to prescribe- but I have to have an administrator in my practice give me permission?? WHEN oh when will we stand up and unionize??
