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.
For more than 15 years, Surescripts has delivered eligibility and group-level formulary insights to prescriber workflows. Today, we work with almost all PBMs to provide benefit coverage information for 71% of the U.S. population.ii
Real-time eligibility and group level formulary coverage eliminates the need for a physician’s office to call the PBM to verify benefits, saving an average of $6.46 per transaction.iii
When combined with electronic prescribing, access to eligibility and group-level formulary information at the point of care increased first-fill medication adherence by 20%.iv
In accordance with CMS regulations, Medicare Part D sponsors must make formulary information available electronically.
Physician access to patient benefit coverage and group-level formulary allows for more-informed conversations with patients.
Surescripts delivers patient-specific drug benefit and cost information to the e-prescribing workflow at the point of care to improve medication adherence and patient care while reducing costs.
Clear and concise patient-specific benefit information is pulled directly from PBMs and delivered to clinicians’ e-prescribing workflow.
With up-to-date benefit and cost information, including up to five drug alternatives and three channel options, prescribers can select ideal medications covered under patients’ pharmacy benefits.
Better-informed medication choices improve adherence and reduce costs. Plus, upfront cost-transparency eliminates surprises at the pharmacy, which means happier patients and fewer pharmacy callbacks.
No transaction is triggered until the prescriber inputs a drug and a patient’s preferred pharmacy location. We preserve neutrality among network alliance partners and never steer patients toward specific drugs or pharmacy channels.
“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.”
