SureScripts (Alexandria, Va.) is collaborating with the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) (Leawood, Kan.), the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) (Washington), Humana Inc. (Louisville, Ky.), Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, Calif.) and the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) (Englewood, Colo.) to launch The Center for Improving Medication Management.

According to SureScripts, an organization has been founded to improve the safety of the prescribing process. The center will initiate programs to gather and disseminate best practices for deployment of technology that electronically links physicians, pharmacists and patients.

In addition, the center will conduct research that details how physicians, pharmacists and patients can use technology and health information exchanges to improve the way medications are prescribed, filled, used and evaluated for patient outcomes, says SureScripts.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
