Surescripts Boosts Medical Information Exchange Capabilities

E-prescribing service adds features to accelerate digital transmission of medical records and clinical information.

The company said its network supports all federal and state policies and standards for health information exchange -- including privacy and security standards (such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and state law), technology interoperability standards (such as Nationwide Health Information Network Exchange) and message types such as health level seven (HL7), continuity of care record (CCR), and continuity of care document (CCD).

The new services will enable Surescripts to offer several options to EHR vendors, health systems, health information exchanges (HIEs), and the physicians they serve. Among the new features are:

-- Extended Network Connectivity: Surescripts will support and enable the exchange of all types of clinical messages between EHRs, HIEs, and health systems that, today, are not connected with each other.

-- Net2Net Connect: Allows health systems and technology vendors that already support clinical information sharing within their network to connect to Surescripts in order to receive and send clinical information outside their network.

-- Message Stream: Secure messaging tools for health systems and technology vendors to enable their physicians to electronically exchange clinical information.

-- Clinical Message Portal: Simple connectivity tools intended for providers that, today, do not have an EHR system to send and receive clinical messages.
