EHR for better health and outcomes

An open platform to promote decision support

Sunrise Prescription Writer

Enabling e-Prescribing to drive medication safety and efficiency

Sunrise Prescription Writer and e-prescribing enable clinicians to process prescriptions electronically using Surescripts®, The Nation’s E-Prescription Network™. Allscripts clinical solutions and full connectivity promote medication safety, accuracy and efficiency in the prescribing process and encourage meaningful use of the electronic health record (EHR).

With Sunrise Prescription Writer, prescribed medications are automatically recorded to the EHR. During the prescribing process, the provider can immediately check the prescription against the patient’s insurance and, if needed, suggest covered alternatives. Sunrise Prescription Writer also checks for possible contraindications to assist in reducing potential adverse drug events.

Integrated with Sunrise to form a true closed-loop system, the solution helps ensure safe and accurate medication prescribing, fulfillment and administration across a hospital enterprise.
