SureScripts Announces GoldRx Certification Awards

Feb. 28, 2007 - SureScripts, operator of the Pharmacy Health Information Exchange, announced that six physician technology vendors have achieved its new GoldRx certification status. In doing so, Allscripts, ChartConnect, DrFirst, NextGen, RelayHealth and Zix have each gone beyond SureScripts baseline product certification to establish a proven track record with pharmacy interoperability.

“SureScripts and many health IT experts believe that the electronic link between a physician and a pharmacist is the most critical and the most achievable first step toward broader healthcare interoperability,” said Kevin Hutchinson, president and CEO of SureScripts. “For physicians making an investment in the safety of their patients, the efficiency of their practice and the quality of their own clinical decision-making, GoldRx certification helps them know which software vendors are actually delivering on pharmacy interoperability and other critical levels of automation. We congratulate these six vendors on taking the necessary steps to achieve GoldRx certification.”

GoldRx certification status signals how physician software and service providers have met a number of benchmarks for “live” customer deployments – with new physician users and within a technology provider’s existing install base. All of these electronic medical record (EMR) and e-prescribing solutions have completed mandatory testing and are certified to receive medication history (from community pharmacy) and formulary and eligibility information (from SureScripts certified payers and pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs)).

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists.

A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
