Surescripts is working collaboratively with PDR, LLC, a leading provider of drug information, to expand coverage of PDR’s CompletEPA electronic prior authorization solution, which is available to more than 290,000 physicians nationwide.

Between Surescripts’ direct connections with all the largest pharmacy benefit managers and PDR’s library of electronic prior authorization forms, CompletEPA offers the capability to process benefit data for close to 100% of patients in the United States.

CompletEPA is integrated into existing electronic health record software to provide a fully electronic real-time solution, and when coupled with the existing electronic prescribing workflow prior authorizations can be processed, in many cases, before the patient leaves the office, avoiding the need to use Web portals, calls, or faxes.
