Allscripts Wand™

A revolutionary EHR user experience

Allscripts Wand is the native iPad® application for TouchWorks and Professional EHR. It couples the latest in tablet technology with the latest in user-experience innovation for a revolutionary approach to how clinicians practice medicine. Wand enables the mobile healthcare professional to move between their desktop and iPad for patient consultations and management.




Wand breaks new ground in intuitiveness and usability. To create the fastest, most efficient experience for providers, developers employed Human Performance Modeling  —  the technique used by NASA to predict and improve pilot performance. The result is a streamlined workflow and faster access to data.
