See why we’re trusted by healthcare organizations across the country.
In prescription accuracy, measures of progress are data-driven, but the real story is told through improved patient care. The 2022 Surescripts White Coat Award recognizes organizations across healthcare who made great gains in prescription accuracy, and by extension, great gains for their patients.
2022 Surescripts White Coat Award Recognizes Leaders in Patient Safety and Healthcare Delivery
That’s what we’re aiming for when it comes to prescription accuracy. Clarity means that everyone—prescribers, pharmacists and patients—know what they need to know about any given prescription.
Not only does clarity streamline the prescribing and fulfillment process, but it improves time to therapy and patient safety. Prescribers and pharmacists understand each other. Patients understand the instructions. With 2.12 billion e-prescriptions filled in 2021 alone, clarity is all important, and focusing on prescription accuracy adds up to big dividends.
Let’s look at two major improvements involving Structured & Codified Sig and RxChange.
“The White Coat Award represents a win in the competitive world of prescribing systems.”
Dr. Eric Weidmann
Chief Medical Officer, CompuGroup Medical US (CGM eMDs and CGM APRIMA)
Our White Coat Award winners’ focus on clarity made it easier for everyone to understand directions for the proper use of medication, and when resolving concerns with prescriptions during prescribing and fulfillment, it was easier for prescribers and pharmacists to communicate with each other.
To celebrate these improvements, the 2022 Surescripts White Coat Awards recognize leaders in three categories. The Structured & Codified Sig Champion award recognizes organizations who made the best use of this field, while the RxChange Champion award highlights organizations who successfully advanced their use of the RxChange transaction.
In addition, the Highest Accuracy award recognizes the best overall accuracy score, as measured by the Surescripts Sentinel® e-prescription accuracy engine. In 2021, the Surescripts Network Alliance saw a 10% increase in the aggregated Quality Index Score for e-prescriptions across the network—a 200% improvement since 2016.
Surescripts White Coat Award winners improve e-prescription accuracy by adopting best practices and technology enhancements. And they show their commitment to improving patient safety and care quality. With their efforts, they prove that the patient is the point.
Congratulations to this year’s winners:
