The Signature Password is used to send prescriptions.
The Signature Password is used to send ALL prescriptions (if sending a controlled substance you will also be asked to provide your controlled substance password and token pin).
- There is a setting where an Rcopia Admin may turn off the Signature Password so that there is no need for providers to enter the signature password.

The Passphrase is used to transmit controlled substances.
The Passphrase, or controlled substance password, is required for a Provider (ONLY) to send a controlled substance prescription, and is always followed by the One Time Pin (OTP) from a registered token.
The Passphrase can only be reset by the Provider, with access to a token and ability to answer the security question.

Note: Providers who are unable to reset their passphrase will have to complete EPCS identity proofing again.
