Billions of Congratulations to This Year’s 12 White Coat Award Winners

October 28, 2019

Prescription accuracy is the difference between having to pass time at the pharmacy with a sick child in your arms while waiting for your prescription to get filled — and getting the right medication when you need it. It’s the difference between doctors spending their time answering phone calls and faxes or having time to provide better care to patients. That’s why, since 2016, Surescripts has worked across the healthcare industry to improve the accuracy of e-prescription transactions by 64%, leading to better patient safety, speed to therapy, first-fill adherence and patient satisfaction.

The 2019 Surescripts White Coat Award™ celebrates industry leaders from across the Surescripts Network Alliance™ who helped optimize the nearly two billion e-prescriptions delivered by Surescripts in the last year. Because of their efforts, we’ve improved care quality, reduced costs and enhanced patient safety—all while ensuring higher quality information every time the prescription data is used thereafter.

The 2019 White Coat Award includes health systems, pharmacies and pharmacy technology leaders, in addition to electronic health records (EHR) vendors. Here are this year’s Surescripts White Coat Award winners:

Thank you to all of our recipients for making a difference. Read our press release to learn more about the 2019 Surescripts White Coat Award and check out this video to see what sets this year’s winners apart.
