Coordinating Care Across the Entire Patient Journey

Hi Bill, I work at Emerge and would be happy to demo you our search function. The description of what you are looking for is exactly what ChartScout can provide for you. Feel free to reach out to me directly ( or send us a request through the App store as Lindsey mentioned.


Just listened to the usability podcast. Lots of jargon, not much hope! How bout answering simpler usability questions like: Why no search function on Allscripts? eg: Why can't we search "colonoscopy" on patient Smith and locate all colonoscopies? much less expensive and less important technologies (apple tv, for example) incorporate such functionality.

Ross Teague

Thanks for listening and for the feedback, Bill. Search function is one of many common frustrations for health IT users, and an area we’re always looking at improving. You’ve also given us a good topic idea for future podcasts and/or blog posts.

One of our developer partners offers another option for search capabilities: ChartScout from Emerge ( This app can, for example, locate “colonoscopy” in discrete, free text and scanned documents within seconds of a search. It’s certified for TouchWorks EHR, Professional EHR and soon for Sunrise. This is one of nearly 200 options in our Allscripts Application Store ( that can extend the capabilities of your EHR to fit your organization’s needs.
