We’ve improved our network-wide Quality Index Score for electronic prescriptions more than 80% since 2016.1

In several practice areas, prescribers who use Surescripts to find a less costly alternative save patients an average of $50 or more per prescription.2

In 2020, we helped 137,000 clinicians from 23,414 organizations nationwide quickly see where patients received care and locate medical records.3

Healthcare professionals need information to flow easily across systems so they can share and access it anytime and anywhere it’s needed for patient care.
