We're a company full of smart, driven, genuine people all working together to make healthcare better for all. Join us.

What You're Like

What We're Like

We're organized and analytical. (Then again, we work in finance, so you might expect that.) But we aren't just bean counters. We're inquisitive and curious. We know how to work cross-functionally to get things done. Most importantly, we know that our work supports our bottom line-and therefore supports our goal of better healthcare for all.

What the Work is Like

In Surescripts Finance, we aren't intimidated by transaction volumes in the billions. We think on our feet as we measure, interpret and report the company's progress, and after we study both past and present trends, we use what we learn to shape our future.

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.
