Solana Beach, CA – August 12, 2013 – HealthFusion, Inc. is proud to announce that the MediTouch EHR e-prescribing (eRx) system has been awarded with the Surescripts White Coat of Quality for 2012, for the second year in a row. Surescripts’ White Coat program is part of a larger effort to increase the overall quality and accuracy of e-prescribing, by recognizing the organizations who uphold the highest standards of prescription content quality available.
Previously certified as a Surescripts Solution Provider, the MediTouch e-prescribing system is designed to facilitate increased care quality and patient safety. As one of the first five pure ambulatory EHR companies to achieve Meaningful Use EMR Stage 2 certification, MediTouch’s e-prescribing system is among a select few to be recognized with the Surescripts White Coat of Quality.
A two-time recipient of the White Coat of Quality award, HealthFusion has been recognized to:
- Provide a signed commitment from company leadership affirming their organization’s commitment to quality.
- Measure quality metrics as specified in the published industry guidelines and report those metrics to Surescripts.
- Implement changes to software that addresses issues identified during quality reporting.
- Raise prescriber awareness through education and training.
“Surescripts has awarded MediTouch their quality award for two years in a row. We like to say that one time is a sign of excellence, but two years is a sign of commitment. We work closely with Surescripts to continue to improve the quality, efficiency, and accuracy of the e-prescribing experience for MediTouch EHR prescribers,” stated Seth Flam, DO, CEO and President of HealthFusion. “Our e-prescribing solution has been certified by the Drummond Group as Meaningful Use 2014 compliant and we are pleased that the Surescripts White Coat of Quality evaluation process has allowed us to continue to demonstrate our commitment to quality e-prescribing solutions.”
About Surescripts’ Quality Program
E-prescribing saves lives, improves efficiency and reduces the cost of healthcare for all. Surescripts’ industry-wide quality program ensures that these benefits are fully realized. The program is made possible by a nationwide network that enables Surescripts to measure prescription safety, accuracy and completeness in a way that is simply not possible with other forms of prescribing. This uniquely enables Surescripts to collaborate with EHR vendors, pharmacies, and PBMs on continuous improvements to the e-prescribing process — from the time a prescription is first considered by the prescriber to the time the medication is dispensed, and at all points in between.
