Pulse Systems Achieves Surescripts(R) Gold Solution Provider Status


8/25/2011 8:48:42 AM

WICHITA, KS--(Marketwire - August 24, 2011) -

Surescripts announced that Pulse Systems, Inc. has achieved Gold Solution Provider status for e-prescribing with their software solution. This status is granted to vendors with software products that have surpassed Surescripts' baseline product certification to meet criteria that demonstrate a higher level of commitment to e-prescribing. E-prescribers using the Pulse Complete EHR solution have prescription benefit information, prescription history and prescription routing. Pulse is one of only seven EHR/EMR Software vendors to achieve this status.

Gold Solution Provider status recognizes physician technology vendors that are advancing electronic prescribing with customers in the United States. This certification identifies physician technology vendors' products that leverage the complete resources and capabilities of Surescripts and its network to improve the safety, efficiency and quality of the prescribing process.

Basil Hourani, President and CEO of Pulse Systems, Inc., stated, "Pulse has been working diligently for a year to achieve this designation in order to provide Pulse e-prescribing clients with the assurance they are utilizing the safest, most efficient and highest quality e-prescribing solution available. The Surescripts designation provides third party confirmation to our clients that Pulse is accomplishing this goal."

"For physicians, Gold Solution Provider status helps them know which software vendors are meeting the highest standards for e-prescribing," said Mary Martin, Senior Vice President of Customers and Markets for Surescripts. "We congratulate Pulse Systems on completing Gold level certification for their respective products in 2010."

To utilize the Surescripts network, prescribers, pharmacies and PBMs must use software that has completed the Surescripts certification process. This process ensures that the software is able to send and receive electronic messages and share prescription information in accordance with industry standards and that it provides open-choice for medication selection and dispensing location. Additionally, certification focuses on patient safety, efficiency of the electronic prescribing process and ease of use by end users.
