About Surescripts’ Quality Program
E-prescribing improves efficiency, reduces healthcare cost and increases patient safety. Surescripts’ industry-wide quality program ensures that these e-prescribing benefits are realized. Surescripts national network is used to measure prescription safety, accuracy and completeness in a way that is simply not possible with other forms of prescribing. This allows a unique collaboration between Surescripts EHR vendors, pharmacies and PBMs to provide continuous improvements to the e-prescribing process – from the time a prescription is first considered by the prescriber to the time the medication is dispensed and at all points in between.
