PURPOSE

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

2001: THE INDUSTRY SEES AN URGENT NEED TO REPLACE PAPER PRESCRIPTIONS.

Pharmacy associations form SureScript Systems to enable e-prescribing. The three largest PBMs form RxHub to connect payers and prescribers.

2008: THESE COMPETING ORGANIZATIONS FORM A HISTORIC ALLIANCE AS SURESCRIPTS.

The goal: build a national network to deliver comprehensive patient information to the point of care, turning data into actionable intelligence.

TODAY: SURESCRIPTS IS THE NATION'S LARGEST HEALTH INFORMATION NETWORK.

And the Surescripts Network Alliance is tackling the industry's biggest challenges as they evolve.

THE SURESCRIPTS NETWORK ALLIANCE

Built to Transform Interactions between Clinicians, Pharmacists and Patients

The Surescripts Network Alliance unites virtually all electronic health records (EHR) vendors, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), pharmacies and clinicians, plus an increasing number of health plans, long-term and post-acute care organizations, specialty hubs and specialty pharmacy organizations.

Reliable, Secure and Built to Scale

Every Surescripts solution—and every Surescripts Network Alliance participant—benefits from the industry-leading reliability, security and scalability of the Surescripts network.

The core building blocks of our network fall into four layers. These technologies, standards and practices make it possible to securely deliver actionable intelligence across the nation at great scale and speed.

Trust Fabric

This layer demonstrates the integrity of our system and how shared data can and cannot be used. Combined with our strong network governance, our privacy and security safeguards establish the conditions needed for interoperability to thrive.

Transport Layer

This layer makes it technologically possible to exchange electronic health information across multiple domains. Our seamless workflow integration allows healthcare professionals to safely and easily exchange standards-based transactions, access directories, match patients and locate records nationwide.

Usability Layer

Actionable patient intelligence can be delivered to the point of care within existing clinical workflows. We ensure messages can be used by receiving systems, and we orchestrate transaction steps to automate information exchange in an intelligent, secure and orderly fashion.

Optimization Layer

We proactively monitor, analyze and report on network transactions to make ongoing performance improvements that ensure actionable patient intelligence is delivered as quickly and accurately as possible. When issues arise, Surescripts technical support works to resolve them quickly.
