This is a reminder of the Surescripts 10.6 Sunset Policy for Routing and Medication History
If you are currently using an older version of Practice Partner, Medisoft Clinical or Lytec MD, and if you plan to continue to send Routing (New e-prescriptions and Refill Requests), Medication History, or Eligibility transactions, you have until June 30th, 2015 to upgrade to an EMR that is compliant with the Surescripts 10.6 protocol.
The compliant versions of EMR that we have available for you are Practice Partner v11.0, Medisoft Clinical v19 SP1, and Lytec MD 2014 SP1. No previous versions of Practice Partner, Medisoft Clinical or Lytec MD are/will be compliant with the Surescripts requirement.
The Surescripts 10.6 Protocol
The Surescripts 10.6 Sunset Policy for Routing and Medication History is that Surescripts will reject all pre 10.6 or 4010 transactions starting on July 1, 2015. Users of Medisoft Clinical, Lytec MD and Practice Partner EMR systems have until June 30th, 2015 to upgrade to one of the compliant EMR versions.
Reminder About ICD-10
In addition to the Surescripts requirement, ICD-10 is still scheduled to be implemented in October 1, 2015. Practices using older versions of Practice Partner, Medisoft Clinical and Lytec MD will need to be on these same updated releases in order to be ready for ICD-10. So even if you are not affected or using e-prescribing, but continuing to use older versions, those versions will not support ICD-10 coding on October 1, 2015.
