What are the benefits of connecting to the Surescripts network?
For physicians and health care providers: Surescripts' clinical interoperability solutions allow physicians and health care providers to break down barriers of software, affiliations, or geography to electronically exchange clinical information with other physicians locally or nationwide, in a secure manner, using intuitive, easy-to-use tools. Connecting to the Surescripts network supports improvement in health care quality, cost reduction and the achievement of "meaningful use."
For EMRs/HIEs/IDNs: Surescripts' suite of
clinical interoperability solutions provides an on-ramp for EMR
providers, HIEs and IDNs that wish to connect their network users
to Surescripts' nationwide health information network in a way that
is complementary to their own operations. By doing so, they will
allow their affiliated physician/providers to see their messaging
capability transform from local to national, in a manner that
integrates well with their existing solutions.
Ultimately, the expansion of Surescripts national health information network will further contribute to reducing the cost, and improving the quality, safety and efficiency of health care across the country, as well as providing deeper support for a physician's achievement of 'meaningful use'.
