Company Overview

Surescripts was founded in 2001 when the pharmacy industry and other collaborators set out to replace paper prescriptions with electronic. Today, we’re the nation’s largest healthcare information network, connecting pharmacies, care providers, benefit managers and technology partners to get the right information to the right place at the right time. We offer industry-leading solutions that digitize manual workflows and use our unparalleled breadth of data to vastly improve healthcare connectivity, patient safety and provider efficiency.


What You’re Like

You like to innovate on a proactive versus reactive basis. You can play at the intersection of technology and business because your brain works both ways. You appreciate the healthcare industry’s need to innovate for safe, effective and connected healthcare. You can understand and deliver value in terms that customers use and care about, i.e. making their jobs easier and reducing manual work to improve patient care and saving money. You are ready to step into a key role as part of the solution—not just for your customers’ benefit, but for the entire nation.


What We’re Like

Surescripts Product Innovation is a diverse team of leaders who execute Surescripts’ business strategy. We have a knack for surrounding ourselves with the right “brain trust” (read: select collaborators who are experts on a wide variety of topics) to inform our work. On the team, there are business gurus who understand the healthcare IT market and how a product will be positioned. There are experts who can translate an exciting concept into a set of requirements to actually go and build it. And there are pros who know what it takes to get new products to market and manage the more mature ones. And most importantly, this team has a deep technical understanding and can articulate Surescripts’ value in terms that will resonate with customers.


Ok, But Here’s What It’s Really Like Working at Surescripts Product Innovation, you’ll be called upon to coax the right information out of our customers to get at their unmet needs. You’ll maximize our deep relationships with our customers and the industry by monetizing our assets. You’ll leverage these assets—our nationwide network and actionable intelligence it delivers—to create real value for customers. You’ll work to help put the right players—from payers to physicians to pharmacies—onto a common network so that they can more effectively communicate and coordinate high-quality and well informed healthcare.
