Allscripts Sunrise™ first acute EHR to successfully deliver certified 2015 technology; Allscripts TouchWorks® EHR achieves full certification by completing G2 Object Measure Certification

CHICAGO, May 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ­­Through its partnership with Drummond Group LLC, Allscripts (NASDAQ:MDRX) newest versions of Sunrise and TouchWorks EHR are now certified for the 2015 Edition requirements that support Modified Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 2, Meaningful Use Stage 3, Advancing Care Information (ACI) and ACI transition requirements. Sunrise and TouchWorks complete Allscripts EHR offerings to be fully certified for all required certification criteria. In April, the company announced The Allscripts Professional EHR™ as the first solution certified in the ONC-HIT program. The certifications are reflected on the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC-HIT) Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL). Allscripts FollowMyHealth®, the company’s patient engagement solution, was certified in December 2016.

Allscripts Sunrise is the industry’s first hospitals and health systems EHR certified to enable clinicians to meet both inpatient and ambulatory requirements of the EHR incentive program as well as the Quality Payment Program (QPP). Along with TouchWorks, both EHRs provide all eligible clinicians the relevant workflows and technology they need to meet Meaningful Use 3 (MU3), Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Model (APM) requirements.

Sunrise offers an intelligent, comprehensive suite of EHR solutions. Built on an Open platform with advanced clinical decision support, it provides immediate analysis and insights across inpatient, ambulatory, emergency and other high-acuity care settings, delivering a single patient record, seamless workflows and consolidated analytics for the entire organization.

“Allscripts continues to be the leader in the Health Certification program, offering both ambulatory and acute fully certified 2015 edition technology,” said Dave Dolan, President, Drummond Group. “This milestone is a perfect example of the commitment the organization has to bettering the certification landscape and improving the secure usage and sharing of health information.”

TouchWorks EHR is an Open-platform solution that brings all data sources together. Along with the capability to customize workflows, TouchWorks enables clinicians to coordinate and deliver primary and specialized care effectively by streamlining administrative tasks, resulting in more time devoted to patients and their practices.

“We recognize the significance this certification represents to the industry,” said Paul M. Black, Allscripts Chief Executive Officer. “Ensuring our clients are well positioned to meet all the qualifications from CMS and ONC is one of Allscripts top priorities and we’re proud to be first in the industry to achieve certification across our solutions that adhere to these requirements.”
