Reminder to Prescribers of Availability of Medication History
Prescribers in Texas and other areas impacted by Hurricane Harvey are reminded to utilize Medication History data through your EHR. During a natural disaster, access to medication history data is a critical tool for providers who are working around the clock to treat patients in need. Surescripts Medication History provides access to complete and up-to-date patient-specific prescription data that can help limit errors and adverse drug events. This tool is particularly critical when treating patients who have been displaced and may not have their prescription information available. Prescribers who are unsure if this service is available to them should contact their EHR vendor.
