GOSHEN, NY, February 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- WRS Health is pleased to announce it has earned the Surescripts 2013 White Coat of Quality Award. The White Coat of Quality Award recognizes WRS Health's dedication and commitment to providing an efficient and safe electronic prescribing process and is a featured part of Surescripts quality program, which has the goal of achieving 100% reliability in e-prescribing.
"We are honored to receive Surescripts White Coat of Quality Award once again this year and to be recognized for WRS Health's ongoing commitment to clinical quality and efficiency in healthcare," said Lawrence Gordon, MD, founder and CEO of WRS Health. "The White Coat of Quality reaffirms both the excellence of our web-based EHR and practice management system and distinguishes the WRS support team for their dedication to providing the best possible training to the practices we serve."
WRS Health, a leading web-based provider of fully integrated electronic medical record and practice management solutions for medical practices, was applauded by Surescripts for its efforts to measure quality, identify issues, and implement changes and training to improve the efficiency and safety of its technology and the e-prescribing process overall. Among other updates in 2013, WRS Health worked to improve its prescription messaging capabilities to enhance the efficiency of its e-prescribing services and train users on how to better utilize their e-prescribing system to reduce clinical content errors.
The Surescripts White Coat of Quality distinction is earned and awarded annually. WRS Health was also recognized with the White Coat of Quality award for 2011 and 2012. The EHR and practice management system was recently recertified by Surescripts for the 2014 year, confirming that WRS Health is in accordance with industry standards.
"Surescripts is proud that our truly collaborative efforts with software technology providers are producing continuous quality improvements in e-prescribing and electronic information exchange. It is an honor to work closely with healthcare software professionals who are committed to implementing our proven e-prescribing best practices and who worked hard to earn the White Coat of Quality distinction," said Ajit Dhavle, Pharm.D., Director of Clinical Quality of Surescripts.
According to a recent article from HealthLeaders Media, e-prescribing now accounts for 50 percent of prescriptions written in the country, bridging gaps in patient care. In the past as many as one-third of prescriptions written never made it to the pharmacy, according to SureScripts. When a doctor writes an electronic prescription, however, the pharmacy knows that the patient needs to pick it up.
WRS Health has been helping medical practices simplify their clinical and workflow processes and achieve business goals for over 10 years. The organization's web-based solutions ensure each client's success through personalized training and support, acting as an invaluable organization and human resources tool to improve the efficiency and profit of small and large medical practices in over 32 specialties.
