Successfully delivering past care locations and summaries from outside a given region or health system remains a challenge for many healthcare professionals. That’s why the Surescripts Network Alliance built a secure, nationwide interoperable health data exchange network to provide healthcare professionals with actionable patient intelligence for safer and more informed decisions at the point of care.
– In 2017, more than 51,000 clinicians using the Record Locator & Exchange located 26.4 million documents explaining where patients received prior care. And they exchanged four million clinical records during the last three months of the year alone.
Today, the Surescripts Network Alliance includes virtually all electronic health records (EHR) companies, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), pharmacies and clinicians, and an increasing number of health plans, long-term care and specialty pharmacy organizations, who collectively transmit nearly 13 billion transactions via the network annually, including nearly five million e-prescriptions every day.
