Counts change with each monthly release, and will be reflected in the counts below.
ScriptFax is built using advanced data mining to acquire hard-to-find chain pharmacy fax numbers, and is the best value in a well-populated database of pharmacy fax numbers. ScriptFax reveals hidden fax numbers for CVS, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Walmart, Target and other chain pharmacy locations, as well as more than 45,000 independent pharmacies.
ScriptFaxCS is a special version that is tested and expanded by a crowdsourcing program of prescription infrastructure companies. Organizations who wish to buy into the ScriptFaxCS program are background-checked and agree to report new or changed information, and fax numbers that are incorrect. ScriptFaxCS is available only to qualified Testing Partners, and requires participation in the crowdsource program. Testing Partners may qualify for a discount on the monthly subscription price. Contact CarePrecise Sales for information on becoming a ScriptFaxCS testing partner. The basic ScriptFax version, without contributions from testing partners, is available for sale at the pricing shown above. Non-participants may purchase the ScriptFax basic version.
CarePrecise has also recently developed ScribeFax, an enhanced clinician fax database, that can be utilized in prescription and treatment clarifications and medical records requests. 10% will be deducted from the prices when purchasing ScribeFax and ScriptFax at the same time.
Pharmacy data from hundreds of thousands of source records, beyond the pharmacies' NPI records, is mined by CarePrecise to create the most comprehensive database of pharmacy fax numbers available. Mined data fills gaps in pharmacy fax numbers, particularly in chain pharmacies such as CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Rite Aid, and the rest. To this, ScriptFaxCS Partners add value by reporting inaccurate fax number data, correct fax numbers found, and suggestions for improvement of the product (ScriptFaxCS is available by special agreement only.)
Unlike the NPI registry and other publicly available pharmacy fax number sources, which contain few working fax numbers for some chain pharmacy locations*, ScriptFax contains thousands more fax numbers for chain and independent pharmacies.
The crowdsource version of Script FaxCS, with corrected, new and deprecated numbers provided by testing partners, is restricted to those participating in the ongoing crowdsource data improvement effort, either through direct reporting to improve the dataset, or funding of the program. Contact the program director about becoming a testing partner by requesting ScriptFaxCS participation information.
A Complete U.S. Pharmacy Database
ScriptFax includes all pharmacies, not just those for whom a fax number is reported, and it includes more correct pharmacy fax numbers than any other existing resource. Included for all pharmacies are the name, pharmacy physical address, phone number, type of pharmacy, latitude and longitude of the pharmacy zip code, and number of pharmacists, among other data (see table below). Advanced data mining appends fax numbers where none are accessible theough available sources.
Robust Pharmacy Fax Data
By drawing on pharmacist data as well as the pharmacies' records, ScriptFax fills in gaps left (intentionally) by many chain pharmacies who do not wish to broadly expose store fax numbers. The numbers below are counts of records with fax numbers. Note that in the counts below, Total Records with Fax differs from Unique Locations in that one location may have more than one NPI record, and the database contains all. If multiple fax numbers are available for a single pharmacy location, it may have more than one record in the file. This ensures that certain data, such as licensure and contact persons, are presented. Total Records in DB is the total number of pharmacy in the database, including those for whom we have not yet identified a fax number.
Counts shown are for ScriptFax Basic:

All U.S. pharmacies are included, even those that we do not yet have fax numbers for.
Only four chain pharmacy counts are shown, but similar coverage pertains to all chains.
These numbers are approximate, as data changes continuously. New updates are released twelve times per year. Not all records are populated with all data points.
These numbers pertain to ScriptFax Basic, and not to the more advanced ScriptFaxCS.
To obtain ScriptFaxCS, contact the program director by requesting ScriptFaxCS participation information.
What Data Is Included in ScriptFax?
Version 2.07: The database is presented as a "flat file" that can be used in Excel or other spreadsheet or database program. Each record – which may be more than one per location – appears on its own row in the Excel and CSV files. A single pharmacy location may have more than one record in the file. This ensures that certain data, such as licensure and contact persons, are presented.
ScriptFax is delivered in three formats: Microsoft Access .mdb, Microsoft Excel .xlsx, and Comma Separated Values .csv. Product version 2.03. Builder version 4.77.
An archive of records that have been deprecated as a result of testing or other method of verification is preserved in the file PharmacyFax_Deprecated, identical in structure to the ScriptFax file.
