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 2013, for the third year in a row. The White Coat of Quality is Surescripts' highest recognition for software providers that uphold their strict standards for clinical quality and best practices in e-prescribing. Only four of the top 25 EHRs are multi-year winners.
Previously certified as a Surescripts Solution Provider, the MediTouch e-prescribing system is designed to facilitate increased care quality and patient safety. 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 for multiple years.
HealthFusion earned the 2013 White Coat of Quality award by meeting requirements including:
- Submitting a quality commitment letter signed by senior leadership affirming its company's commitment toward a goal of zero electronic prescription content errors.
- Measuring their e-prescription content error levels monthly and report to Surescripts in final submission.
- Making software changes needed to reduce e-prescription clinical content error levels.
- Communicating with or training end-users on how to better utilize their e-prescribing system to reduce clinical content errors.
"We are very pleased that Surescripts has awarded MediTouch their quality award for three years in a row. We like to say that one time is a sign of excellence, two years is a sign of commitment, and three years is evidence of a corporate culture that is relentless in its pursuit of the highest level of quality. Working closely with Surescripts, we are committed to continuing 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 also 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 demonstrate once again our commitment to quality e-prescribing solutions."
