QuickSCRIP offers the ability to search an off-site database for Doctor DEA Numbers. The DEA number can then be Inserted into the existing doctor or a new doctor can be Added to your Doctor File. In order for this feature to work, you must have a functioning internet connection.

  3. QuickSCRIP will enter the doctor's name as you have it entered in the Doctor File. Press Enter to search for the doctor in the database. A list of doctors may appear or a message stating, No Matches Found.
  4. If the No Matches Found messages appears, select F to find. Remove some of the name to broaden your search and press Enter. A pick list will appear displaying possible matches.
  5. Select the best match and review the displayed information. Be sure you have selected the correct doctor. Choose I to Insert the DEA Number in the doctor file.

Common Problems

If the DEA Look-up does not work, it could be due to connectivity issues with the off-site database. Be sure your internet connection is working, and if it is, we may need to restart the database server on our end. Please contact us at (866) 259-6091.
