Electronic prescribing network vendor Surescripts has been expanding its capabilities to also transmit clinical information and now has a major partner in the 75,000-member American Academy of Family Physicians.

The organizations have teamed to build AAFP Physicians Direct, a secure clinical messaging system being offered to AAFP members for $15 per physician per month. The physician members will be able to transmit referrals, patient summaries, discharge summaries, lab results and other clinical data with any other subscribers to the Surescripts Network for Clinical Interoperability. The network also will enable the transmittal of alerts to any provider including nonsubscribers.
