A Better Partner for Community Pharmacists

October 12, 2016

With over 70 percent of all prescriptions processed electronically, e-prescribing is proof that interoperability is happening. But with many prescriptions still requiring manual intervention, there is still work to be done to improve accuracy and efficiency across the network. Over the past year, we have been actively engaged with the National Community Pharmacists Association and more than 125 customers and industry partners across the network to identify opportunities for improvements and work together to improve e-prescribing to the benefit of everyone, including pharmacists.

To learn more about how Surescripts is improving e-prescribing for community pharmacists, watch the video below to hear directly from our CEO Tom Skelton. 



As we continue to celebrate American Pharmacists Month we look forward to seeing you next week at the 2016 NCPA Annual Convention where you can visit Surescripts at booth #847. You can also swing by the Technology Seminar to hear from Surescripts’ pharmacy expert, Ken Whittemore on our latest e-prescribing capabilities, RxChange and CancelRx.

Join the conversation below or reach out to @Surescripts on social media using #NCPA2016 during the NCPA Annual Convention and using #APhM2016 all month long!
