Allscripts will integrate with ID.me, an identity software platform, to equip its EHR with multifactor authentication for providers electronically prescribing controlled substances.

Allscripts plans to roll out ID.me's e-prescribing identity proofing tool in March. With the new feature, providers will verify their identity with ID.me through online registration or virtual video chat with the company's call center representatives.

"With secure digital identity, malicious actors will have a much more difficult time perpetrating opioid abuse," ID.me CEO and Founder Blake Hall said in a news release. "Our solution conforms to rigorous federal requirements for prescribing controlled substances, yet we have taken great care to ensure the process is also accessible for providers so they can spend as much time as possible caring for patients."
