Accurate e-prescriptions improve the prescribing process for physicians and pharmacists and enhance patient care. That’s why we’re excited to announce the new Surescripts White Coat Award, which recognizes the efforts our customers are making to improve e-prescription accuracy and rewards leaders who have adopted best practices and technology enhancements to achieve top results.


Highest Accuracy: Best prescription accuracy as of August 1 based on Surescripts Quality Index Score*

Most Improved Accuracy: Greatest change in Quality Index Score* between July 31 and August 1 of the year prior

Trailblazer Award: Most accurate combined Drug Description, Drug ID, Sig and Potency Unit Code as of August 1


All electronic health records (EHRs) and health systems that contract directly with Surescripts will be considered for the awards. No submission is required.

If your health system contracts through an EHR vendor for Surescripts solutions, your organization is not eligible at this time.
