Collectively Enabling Safer and More Affordable Prescriptions
Arming Healthcare Professionals with Actionable Patient Intelligence
The Surescripts Network Alliance includes virtually all EHRs, PBMs, pharmacies and clinicians, plus an increasing number of health plans, long-term and post-acute care organizations and specialty pharmacy organizations.
10% of patients who abandon their medication do so because of cost.i Our Benefit Optimization solutions deliver real-time, patient-specific medication price transparency.
Surescripts delivers patient-specific benefit information to prescriber and pharmacist workflows, to improve medication adherence and patient care while reducing cost barriers for the patient.
Clear and concise patient-specific benefit information is pulled directly from the benefit plan and delivered to prescribers and pharmacists in their e-prescribing and dispensing workflows.
Pharmacists explore up to five lower-cost drug alternatives. And, with up-to-date benefit and cost information (including drug alternatives and three channel options), prescribers explore medications covered under patients’ benefit plans.
Better-informed medication selection improves adherence and reduces costs for prescribers, pharmacists and patients, easing physician burnout, preventing prescription abandonment, and reducing patient sticker shock. This means happier patients and fewer callbacks.
No transaction is triggered until the prescriber inputs a drug and the patient’s preferred pharmacy location. Surescripts preserves neutrality among Network Alliance partners.
“The ability to see what a particular drug will cost, plus real-time prior authorization, will relieve a lot of burden on both providers and patients, and improve satisfaction across the board.”
