Inpatient & Ambulatory: Surescripts Down – What happened and What you should do…
The Surescripts interface [the tool that transmits electronic prescription messages to pharmacies] was not working for several hours last week.
Error messages were sent to your E-Prescribing Errors folder.
What was the resolution and what you should do:
Non-controlled substance prescriptions that failed were successfully retriggered to the pharmacies.
Controlled substance prescriptions were not able to be retriggered. Prescribers will need to electronically resend any failed controlled substance prescriptions found in your E-Prescribing Error folder, if not already completed.
Pharmacies may call about receiving duplicates. Please closely review the patient’s med list and confirm the correct orders were placed.
