How can I prescribe electronically over the Surescripts network?

Physicians interested in e-prescribing must use e-prescribing software or an Electronic Health Record (EHR) that has been certified to connect to the Surescripts network.

If your practice already has an EHR system, it is likely that your system has been certified by Surescripts. You simply need to contact your vendor representative and ask about getting connected to the Surescripts network.

If you do not yet have an EHR or e-prescribing software in your practice, you will need to acquire a solution that fits your practice needs. A comprehensive list of e-prescribing technologies that have been certified by Surescripts is available on our web site.
