I did some reading on this and triplicate prescriptions. Wow, what an eye opener.
Can controlled substance prescriptions be sent electronically? Here's an NIH site that gives fairly clear information. There is a lot of confusion from site to site so take a bit and read it.
Basically, yes they 'can' but they don't 'have to'. Most doctors aren't using it. I don't know if it differs from state to state but supposedly it's OK nation wide. Plus there's a push to do away with the entire idea. Don't you just love how government works? <my opinion only>
