What advantages does e-prescribing via the Surescripts network offer my pharmacy?
E-prescribing via the Surescripts network gives you the ability to receive new prescriptions directly into your pharmacy computer. You and your staff can also send renewal authorization requests electronically to connected physicians in your area and receive the authorization or denial on your pharmacy computer. Less time spent on calls and faxes with physicians will give you and your staff more time for patient counseling and revenue-enhancing activities like medication therapy and inventory management.
At the end of 2010, more than 234,000 prescribers, 91% of community pharmacies and six of the largest mail-order pharmacies were actively e-prescribing on the Surescripts network.
