ALEXANDRIA, Va., and ST. PAUL, Minn. – May 27, 2010 – Surescripts®, the Nation’s E-Prescription Network, today announced that eight vendors representing nine physician software products have completed Gold certification. The resulting Gold Solution Provider status is granted to vendors with software products that have surpassed Surescripts’ baseline product certification to meet criteria that  demonstrate a higher level commitment to e-prescribing.

The following vendors have achieved Surescripts Gold Solution Provider status for their respective products:

Allscripts – Professional EHR Version 8.3 Update 1

CureMD – CureMD EHR Version 10

Doctations – Doctations Version 1

NewCrop – NewCrop Core Version 10.1

OmniMD – OmniMD Version 8.2

RxNT – RxNT Version 6.1.4

Gold Solution Provider status recognizes physician technology vendors that are advancing electronic prescribing and healthcare interoperability with customers in the United States. This certification is designed to recognize physician technology vendors’ products that leverage the complete resources and capabilities of Surescripts and its network to improve the safety, efficiency and quality of the prescribing process.

“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, Gold Solution Provider status helps them know which software vendors are meeting the highest standards for e-prescribing,” said Harry Totonis, president and CEO of Surescripts. “We congratulate Allscripts, CureMD, Doctations, DrFirst, H2H, NewCrop, OmniMD and RxNT on completing Gold level certification for their respective products in 2009.”

To utilize the Surescripts network, prescribers, pharmacies and PBMs must use software that has completed the Surescripts certification process.

This process ensures that the software is able to send and receive electronic messages in accordance with industry standards and that it provides open choice for medication selection and dispensing location. Additionally, certification focuses on patient safety, efficiency of the electronic prescribing process and ease of use by end users.
