CS-Link Tip: Pre-register for Okta App

The electronic process for prescribing controlled substances is being simplified. The new process will begin Wednesday, Aug. 7, and will require that you pre-register for Okta.

Currently, to prescribed controlled substances electronically, you use the DUO application on your phone. This requires entering the order, verifying your DEA number, putting in your usual Cedars-Sinai log-in, and then picking up your phone, going to the DUO application, and typing in a number.

However, once you have the new Okta application and need to prescribe electronically, you will see a screen that says "Okta Verify." Click "Send Push," and instead of typing in a number on your phone, you will only have to hit "Approve."

To learn more, attend a CS-Link Efficiency and Review for Physicians meeting on the second Thursday of each month. The classes, which begin at 7:30 a.m., are held in PEC 4.
