Surescripts Announces Recipients of the 2011 White Coat of Quality

Electronic Health Record, E-Prescribing Technology Vendors Recognized for Commitment to Continuous Improvement in Prescription Quality (February 17, 2012)

ARLINGTON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/17/12 -- Surescripts today announced that 64 technology vendors have been awarded the Surescripts White Coat of Quality for 2011. The White Coat recognizes organizations that uphold the highest standards of prescription content quality in e-prescribing and is a featured part of Surescripts overall quality program.

"As the use of e-prescribing continues to grow, electronic health record and e-prescribing technology vendors continue to benefit from the knowledge that comes from Surescripts' pharmacists, clinicians, technologists and quality experts conducting clinical quality reviews on millions of electronic prescription messages -- all while protecting the privacy of personal health information," said David Yakimischak, chief quality officer at Surescripts. "Surescripts White Coat of Quality recognizes those vendors that have embraced this knowledge and are using it to improve their technology and train their prescribers. These vendors are not simply replacing handwritten prescriptions with e-prescriptions; they are using the opportunity to apply continuous improvements to prescription content accuracy, completeness and integrity."

In 2011, the criteria for earning a White Coat required vendors to:

1. Provide a signed commitment from company leadership affirming their organization's commitment to quality.
2. Measure quality metrics as specified in the published industry guidelines and report those metrics each month to Surescripts.
3. Implement changes to software that address issues identified in quality reporting and take steps to eliminate any issues measured in #2 above.
4. Raise prescriber awareness through training.
