Electronic prescribing can especially reduce opportunities for diversion of controlled substances by eliminating the use of paper forms, which can be lost, stolen and used illegally. E-prescribing also can help provide timely patient care.

Electronic prescribing for controlled and uncontrolled substances becomes mandatory in California in January 2022
Beginning Jan. 1, 2022, dentists and other prescribers in California must issue electronic-data prescriptions for both controlled and noncontrolled substances with very few exceptions. Paper prescriptions will no longer be allowed by state law.
All pharmacies across the state, too, must be capable of accepting those prescriptions and are required to immediately notify prescribers if the electronic transmission fails or is incomplete.
Assembly Bill 2789, which mandates the electronic prescribing, was signed into law in 2018, but CDA advocated for the three-year implementation window to give dentists time to obtain adequate e-prescribing systems and to train staff.
