Verify EHR System Capabilities
Steps to Verifying Your EHR's Capabilities
Identify your product, version, and vendor
If you're using an older EHR or e-prescribing application, medication history functionality may not be present. Look for the “About” or “Help” menu in your application; the version that you're using should be listed there. If it's not, contact your vendor representative for assistance.
Determine certification status
In order for a system to transact with SureScripts' network, it must have been certified by SureScripts. If you know the name and version of the product your practice is using, you can check out the product's certification status(www.surescripts.com).
Ask your vendor how to enable functionality
If your product has been certified to provide prescription history, contact your vendor representative to ask what it will take to enable this functionality.
