Keycentrix Wins Surescripts 2019 White Coat Award for Prescription Accuracy

Annual Award Celebrates Electronic Health Records, Health Systems and Pharmacy Industry Leaders for Improving Patient Safety and Workflow Efficiency

Keycentrix™ has won the prestigious 2019 Surescripts White Coat Award™. This honor celebrates healthcare industry leaders across the Surescripts Network Alliance™, who helped optimize over one billion electronic prescriptions delivered by Surescripts in the last year.

Keycentrix is among 4 award winners in the Pharmacy Industry Leaders category who achieved top results in e-prescription accuracy. The award is based on Surescripts’ Quality Index Score, which leverages data from Surescripts Sentinel® system to assign a composite score reflecting overall e-prescription accuracy.

Keycentrix is the only award winner that provides pharmacy management systems to the broader independent pharmacy market.

“I speak for everyone at Surescripts in congratulating and thanking Keycentrix for their outstanding work toward perfecting e-prescribing,” said Tom Skelton, Chief Executive Officer of Surescripts. “Achieving results like these is no small task, but it’s the tangible result of Keycentrix collaborating with the Surescripts Network Alliance to increase patient safety and improve the prescribing process for patients, prescribers and pharmacists.”

The Surescripts White Coat Award is part of the Surescripts Critical Performance Improvement program, which has brought experts together from across the healthcare industry since 2016. As a result, e-prescription accuracy has improved by 64%, leading to better quality, safety and cost.

“We are thrilled to receive this award. Much like Surescripts, we place utmost emphasis on patient safety, and we couldn’t be more honored and humbled to be recognized for one of our core values,” said Luis Rodriguez, President of Keycentrix. “Our focus is always on doing what’s best for the patients our customers serve.”

Surescripts White Coat Award winners were announced at the annual Surescripts Network Alliance Forum on September 24.
