Physician Identity Proofing for EPCS

In an effort to mitigate the opioid crisis, the Drug Enforcement Administration mandated a NIST 800-63 certified identity proofing and authentication process for physicians issuing prescriptions of controlled substances online. ID.me, a digital identity platform, provides seamless identity verification for physicians and healthcare providers to meet EPCS requirements. It is the first credential service provider in the United States to become NIST-800-63-3 certified, and it already services more than 200 organizations including healthcare systems, government agencies, financial institutions, and nonprofits.
