Annual Award Celebrates Healthcare Leaders for Performance, Innovation and Accuracy
BestRx has received the 2023 Surescripts White Coat Award™ for Highest Performance, the healthcare industry’s premier recognition of leaders in e-prescription accuracy as well as adoption of technology that improves patient safety and healthcare delivery. BestRx, joins 10 other healthcare industry leaders from across the Surescripts Network Alliance® who have achieved excellence across three categories, including Highest Performance, Innovation and RxChange Champion and share a commitment to advancing patient care across the country.
BestRx knows that advancing patient health and safety is the overarching goal for every pharmacy. That’s why our software solutions are designed to simplify and streamline each step in the prescription workflow. By enabling pharmacies to efficiently receive and process scripts electronically, BestRx helps to ensure prescriptions are filled quickly and accurately. Not only does automating tedious steps within the workflow reduce the likelihood of manual-entry related mistakes, but the system also includes many built-in safety alerts, including allergy and drug interaction warnings and issues with a script, so the pharmacy can take appropriate action.
“From day one, BestRx has focused on developing software solutions that not only help independent pharmacies operate more efficiently, but provide better, safer care for their community as well,” says Hemal Desai, President of BestRx. “Software integrations, like the one we have with Surescripts is the perfect example of this. By working together, pharmacies can eliminate manual processes from their workflow, enabling them to receive and process electronic prescriptions not just quickly, but accurately as well.”
“With more than 2.34 billion e-prescriptions filled in 2022, it is essential that we work together across the Surescripts Network Alliance to achieve the highest standards for prescription accuracy and patient safety,” said Frank Harvey, Chief Executive Officer for Surescripts. “The 2023 White Coat Award winners are moving prescription accuracy and performance forward by working tirelessly to protect patient safety, accelerate time to therapy by eliminating confusion and rework, and helping ensure patients get the best possible care.”
