Surescripts, the Arlington, Va.-based operator of a national clinical electronic network that facilitates health information exchange, has added a number of electronic health record (EHR) software vendors to its network, the company announced this week.

The vendors, 19 in all, include Adaptamed, AssistRx, Bizmatics, ChartLogic, ClinixMD, CureMD, ScriptSure by Daw Systems, GeniusDoc, gloStream, HealthFusion, Henry Schein MicroMD, Medical Office Technologies, Intelligent Medical Software (IMS by Meditab Software.), Merge Healthcare, OA Systems, PatientPoint, SRSsoft, STI Computer, and SuccessEHS. Most of the vendors cater to different kinds of care environment than traditional ambulatory and acute hospitals, including specialty pharmacies, medical labs, small and mid-sized physician practices, dental practices, and specialty practices ranging from nephrology to veterinarian medicine.

“As a trusted partner to many of these EHR vendors, we continue to make significant progress towards breaking down costly communication barriers among care providers,” said outgoing Surescripts CEO and president, Harry Totonis, in a statement.  “The Surescripts network provides connected EHRs and their rapidly growing contracted base the scale they need to connect care providers within a community and across the country.”

Surescripts’ network has constantly grown over the course of the last year, adding both vendors and healthcare providers alike.
