Impact care decisions with actionable intelligence

Learn how Surescripts can help you control costs, improve member satisfaction and spend fewer resources on administrative work and retrospective compliance initiatives.

In a fragmented healthcare system, it can be hard to exchange information efficiently.

As a health plan, you've built up tremendous expertise in healthcare management. Your data gives you a unique opportunity to improve members' health. But when providers and care managers don’t have up-to-date patient insights, expenses balloon—and the member experience suffers.

Communication gaps hinder care management.

When you have a medication update or concern about a member’s care, it can be hard to connect with providers promptly and securely. And the data your own care management teams need is often delayed.

  • Only 17% of physicians can easily find medication adherence data electronically. 1
  • 62% of patients say privacy protections are more important than easier access to their health data. 2

Clinicians prescribe without seeing the full picture.

When your members’ prescription benefit plan details aren’t easy to find, prescribers make medication decisions without a clear view of patient costs and coverage.

  • Cost has deterred 53% of patients from taking a medication. 3
  • Moving to electronic prior authorization could save health plans $99 million a year in labor costs. 4

Help care managers and providers make fully informed, cost-effective care decisions.
