Harry Totonis, the CEO and President of Surescripts, will step down from the company in March after five years on the job, he announced this week.

Totonis came to Surescripts, which operates a national clinical electronic prescribing (ePrescribing) network that connects payers, providers, and pharmacies, after a merger with RxHUB in 2008. He was appointed CEO in March of 2009. Under his leadership, the Surescripts network has grown to transmit more than 6 billion health data transactions annually, connecting more than 500,000 prescribers, 94 percent of community pharmacies, the nation's PBMs, EHR/EMR vendors and many hospitals.

"Harry is a visionary - responsible for the transformation of Surescripts into the nation's leading clinical network that is shaping how healthcare connects and communicates by expanding capabilities to enable interoperability between health systems, physicians and pharmacists,"  Steven Miller, M.D., Co-Chairman of Surescripts' Board of Directors, said in a statement. "We are extremely pleased with what Harry has accomplished and believe the company is well positioned for continued success."

The Board of Directors has begun an executive search for a successor.
