Simplifying intelligence sharing for safer, more affordable prescriptions

Delivers relevant and timely patient data

In 2020, 84% of all prescriptions were delivered electronically through the Surescripts network.1

Wide-reaching coverage

The Surescripts master patient index represents more than 99% of the U.S. population.2

Promotes medication adherence

E-Prescribing is associated with up to a 20% increase in first-fill medication adherence when used with benefit information.3

Lowers costs

E-Prescribing improves administrative performance and clinical outcomes helping address $140–$240 billion in potential savings over 10 years.4

Making an impact for patients


Increasing patient safety

Improving prescription accuracy can increase patient safety, decrease administrative burden, and avoid delays.

Lowering costs

Surescripts data reflects a strong and growing demand for prescription price transparency at the point of care.


Ensuring quality care

E-Prescribing is more critical to the patient experience than ever. At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, e-prescriptions written via telehealth spiked 72.5% in just over a month.5

Improving adherence and patient safety

Prescription price transparency is critical to lowering patients’ out-of-pocket costs and preventing “sticker shock” at the pharmacy. Learn how the Surescripts Network Alliance® is working together.
