INDIANA, PA – 3/9/2023 – Sapphire Health, a leading developer of electronic health record (EHR) software for correctional facilities, recently achieved Surescripts® E-Prescribing certification for Sapphire Health v2.0 software used in over 400 correctional facilities across 36 US states and territories to care for over 250,000 active patients.
“For Sapphire, Surescripts offers another level of efficiency and a single, powerful and optimized connection to a network of pharmacies across the nation,” said Mark Wright, Sapphire Health operations manager.
The Surescripts Network Alliance® unites virtually all electronic health records (EHR) vendors, pharmacy benefit managers, pharmacies, and clinicians, plus health plans, long-term and post-acute care organizations, hubs and specialty pharmacies.
“This certification will allow Sapphire to offer faster implementation solutions to clients already serviced by Surescripts’ network and allow facilities moving from paper MARs to Sapphire eMAR to be ahead of the curve with integration timelines, Wright said. “New clients will have a broader reach to pharmacy solutions and the confidence that Sapphire will fit into their existing processes.”
Wright adds “Sapphire’s in-house development team and lead architect Geoff Caruso worked tirelessly to achieve Surescripts E-Prescribing certification and ensure its many benefits for our correctional clients.”
E-Prescribing sets the standard for safe, clear prescriptions with technology that enables high data quality and efficient prescriber-pharmacist communication.
