The results are in and the data tells a clear story: interoperability is alive and well across American healthcare. In fact, Surescripts 2017 National Progress Report shows that interoperability is not only expanding but also transforming health data exchange.
In particular, the Surescripts Network Alliance is effectively advancing healthcare by:
- Perfecting e-prescribing by measuring accuracy—at scale—to improve patient safety and increase efficiency
- Empowering prescribers at the point of care with prescription price transparency
- Bringing technology to the front lines of the opioid epidemic
- Delivering true interoperability by giving healthcare professionals a more complete view of a patient’s medication and clinical history directly in their EHR workflow
Last year was another chapter in the Surescripts story, and it’s clear that change is constant in the course of building and operating an industrial-strength health information network. Our purpose remains to increase patient safety, lower costs and improve quality, and our nationwide network makes possible a portfolio of solutions that work together to enhance prescribing and inform care decisions.
We appreciate the continued support of each and every participant in the Surescripts Network Alliance who contributed to our collective success, and we look forward to continuing to partner across healthcare to explore new use cases and develop innovative solutions to address the industry’s most pressing issues.
