To serve the nation with the single most trusted and capable health information network, built to increase patient safety, lower costs and ensure quality care.

Our Story and only our story

IN 2001

Different areas of the industry were recognizing an urgent need for a leap forward. Pharmacy associations formed SureScript Systems to create a link to physicians and replace paper prescriptions with more accurate e-prescribing. And the three largest PBMs—Caremark, Express Scripts and Medco Health—formed RxHub to create a link between payers and prescribers.

IN 2008

These competing organizations formed a historical alliance as Surescripts. Their goal was to build a national network to connect clinicians, EHRs, hospitals, PBMs, pharmacies and technology vendors. They believed in the value of having comprehensive patient information at the point of care.

Beyond its unparalleled breadth, depth and volume, the strength of our network is rooted in

  • 1.
    More actionable patient intelligence at critical points of care means better decisions.
  • 2.
    Better decisions mean lower cost, higher quality and increased safety—the “holy grail” of healthcare.
