The Center for Improving Medication Management educates clinicians and their staff on the best approaches to implementing prescribing technology and integrating it with the day-to-day workflow. The Center implements programs that accelerate the automation of the prescribing process. Core to automating the prescribing process is the adoption and use electronic prescribing technologies with physician-pharmacy interoperability as well as the testing of innovative approaches to improve patient compliance with prescribed medications. Targeted research projects overseen by The Center will evaluate and establish best practices in support of these purposes.
The Center was first envisioned by SureScripts and created in collaboration with a diverse set of organizations, each with a significant stake in improving the safety and efficiency of medication management for patients. The co-founders include the American Academy of Family Physicians, Humana Inc., Intel Corporation, and the Medical Group Management Association. SureScripts was founded by the National Association of Chain Drug Stores and the National Community Pharmacists Association.
