Zipnosis physicians will be able to access Surescripts’ medication history services under a new certification, Zipnosis confirmed June 27.
Surescripts, a health information network, supports e-prescription, or electronically transmitting prescriptions between healthcare organizations and pharmacies. Under the new certification, physicians using Zipnosis’ virtual care platform will be able to view a patient’s medication history information from pharmacy benefit managers and community pharmacies.
Surescripts officials said the service will help to inform its physicians of patients’ current and past prescriptions to account for potential adverse drug interactions when prescribing medications.
“Incorporating Surescripts medication history information as part of the provider workflow further enhances their ability to make clinically sound prescribing decisions and streamlines their experience with the platform,” Dr. Kevin Smith, chief medical information officer of Zipnosis, said in the company’s June 27 statement.
