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.
In 2018, the Surescripts Network Alliance™ improved e-prescription accuracy by 14%—representing a 64% improvement since 2016. As a result, physicians and pharmacists spent less time exchanging phone calls and faxes to clarify prescriber intent. And the best part: this increased accuracy ultimately helped patients get the safe, effective care they deserve.
That’s why we’re excited to announce the Surescripts White Coat Award, which recognizes the continued efforts our customers are making to improve e-prescription accuracy. It also rewards leaders who have adopted best practices and technology enhancements that boost healthcare delivery.
This year, in addition to honoring electronic health record (EHR) vendors, we’ve expanded the White Coat Award to include health systems, pharmacies and pharmacy technology leaders. This expansion better reflects the hard work our Network Alliance partners are doing to improve the accuracy of e-prescriptions.
EHRs, health systems, pharmacies and pharmacy technology vendors that contract directly with Surescripts will be considered for the awards. No submission is required.
For each tier, four organizations will be named as finalists and two organizations will be selected as winners.
