DrFirst - e-prescriptions on Atlas.md

The DrFirst Rcopia integration with Atlas.md allows you to e-prescribe via their 3rd party platform. Rcopia is a standalone product, but it integrates with Atlas.md so that your prescription information is transferred automatically to your patient charts. There are associated fees for the use of the Rcopia platform, which you can review below.

Pricing and Billing

  • $475 per doctor for the first year, including set-up fee
  • $400 per doctor every following year
  • $525 one-time setup fee for PDMP enrollment, plus an annual usage fee of $60 per doctor (these costs are optional depending on whether or not you choose to enroll with a PDMP vendor)
  • Free for nurses, staff, and supporting team
  • Payments are processed annually
  • Annual payments will be included in your regular subscription invoices and you’ll be able to review them from the Account > Clinic Billing page

Enrollment into a PDMP

To access a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP), users will have to enroll with their state program as well as register with DrFirst. Enrollment times for state programs vary due to differing state and vendor regulations. Learn more about PDMPs here.

Receive Notifications from Pharmacy or Rcopia

Any time a pharmacy or Rcopia has a notification for you, you’ll get a warning in the Prescriptions tab of your Atlas.md account. From there, you can click on eRx Notifications to review what these notifications are. From that page, you can click on View Notifications to log in to Rcopia and take the necessary actions.


Rcopia has 3 types of passwords that are used at different stages of the prescription process. Click here to learn more.
