Safe-RX Rankings

SAFE-RX™ RANKINGS

Safe-Rx Rankings measure each state’s progress in advancing healthcare safety, efficiency and quality through the adoption and use of e-prescribing. The rankings recognize the full utilization of e-prescribing based on volume of use of Surescripts’ Prescription Benefit, Medication History and Prescription Routing services. Congratulations to Delaware for earning the #1 ranking for 2013. Delaware has ranked in the top 5 since the Safe-Rx rankings began in 2007.
