Austin, Texas – October 17, 2022— CompuGroup Medical US (“CGM”) has received the 2022 Surescripts White Coat Award™ for both Highest Accuracy and Structured & Codified Sig Champion. The Surescripts White Coat Award is the healthcare industry’s premier recognition for leaders in e-prescription accuracy.
CGM, an electronic health records vendor, is among the top winners from across the Surescripts Network Alliance® who met the highest standards for prescription accuracy and patient safety.
CGM is a leading provider of Electronic Health Record and Practice Management software as well as Revenue Cycle Management Services. Working closely with Surescripts, users, and other industry stakeholders the prescribing tools built into the EHRs have been constantly refined to meet changing industry requirements, the continually expanding capabilities of the electronic prescribing network, and most importantly, the needs of busy physicians and their patients.
“We are excited and proud to celebrate two Surescripts White Coat Awards,” stated Derek Pickell, CEO of CompuGroup Medical US. “It represents both the technical quality of our solutions as well as our long history, focus, and leadership in making a positive difference in the productivity and satisfaction of our customers. This enables our vision to help our provider clients to focus on healthy outcomes for their patients.”
“Prescription management is a significant part of a clinician’s workload” said Eric Weidmann, MD, one of CGM’s Chief Medical Officers and a practicing physician. “So, when a system is able to deliver accurate prescriptions that reduce confusion and eliminate time-consuming phone calls and faxes, it saves us time, and it also ensures the focus is on patients who can receive the medications they need.”
The 2022 Surescripts White Coat Award recognized winners in three categories:
