Surescripts and Allscripts Expand Emergency Service to Make Patient Medication History Data Available to Pharmacists in the Wake of Hurricane Irma

In response to the historic impact of Hurricane Irma on the United States, Surescripts and Allscripts are expanding the scope of the service available in the wake of Hurricane Harvey to provide free access to patient-specific medication history data for pharmacists in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina for a limited time. Pharmacists interested in utilizing the service should visit www.surescripts.com/irma to validate their eligibility and gain access to the Allscripts application. Once users have been authorized, they will need to obtain patient consent to see a 12-month view of a patient’s medication history. Prescribers who do not already utilize medication history data through their electronic health record (EHR) software can also download the free, cloud-based application to gain access.
