Today, our industry-leading solutions do much more than that: Our network supports 2 million providers, 324 million patients, and billions of transactions. Our solutions offer actionable patient intelligence at critical points of care for better decisions—from streamlining prior authorizations to delivering comprehensive medication histories to facilitating direct messages between providers.  


We are at the center of the healthcare industry, serving doctors, nurses and pharmacists; health systems, independent practices and pharmacies; health plans, pharmacy benefit managers and electronic health record vendors. 

Our purpose is to serve the nation with the single most trusted and capable health information network, built to increase patient safety, lower costs and ensure quality care. 

What You’re Like

You have a relentless desire to get stuff done. A true champion of the collective objective, you’re energized by applying your expertise with a group of talented people to achieve something important, together. You’re curious and passionate about new technologies and cutting-edge innovation, and you enjoy pulling together complex pieces of a puzzle to deliver a powerful and meaningful end-product. You’re a translator between people and teams that don’t use the same lingo. You don’t settle for short-term gratification—you’re into long-haul, incremental efforts that require endurance, patience and next-level collaboration.

What We’re Like

Surescripts Network Technology and Operations (NT&O) is comprised of smart people who love to work towards a common goal, often delivering an innovative, industry-leading solution to the healthcare marketplace. We pride ourselves on quality work that’s grounded in complete transparency and accountability. When a project goes off the rails—and they do from time to time—we rally around each other to fix it and move on. While our gratification is often the result of a months-long effort, we never tire of delivering a huge result that has an exponentially positive impact on the healthcare system—whether it’s quality, cost or patient safety.

OK, But Here’s What It’s Really Like

Working at Surescripts NT&O, your thinking cap will always be on. You’ll be challenged to make sure that disparate, cross-functional pieces come together to create a desired result. You might swarm around some work if you think a milestone is about to be missed. You’ll work to quickly understand diverse technologies, and establish and maintain relationships with groups who see and talk about things differently.
