CHICAGO and FREMONT, Calif., June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Allscripts
(Nasdaq: MDRX), a leader in software, services, information, and connectivity
solutions for physicians and hospitals, and SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a
leading business process services company, today announced that SYNNEX,
through its SYNNEX Healthcare Solutions Division, will distribute the
Allscripts MyWay(TM) Electronic Health Record (EHR) to Allscripts authorized
resellers who are also members of the SYNNEX Healthcare Solutions distribution

Through this partnership, SYNNEX will leverage its existing IT
distribution capabilities and technology experience within the healthcare
market to expand and accelerate the adoption of the Allscripts MyWay EHR. The
SYNNEX Healthcare Solutions distribution network is focused on resellers with
a dedicated concentration in the healthcare industry, including Allscripts
resellers authorized to offer the Allscripts MyWay EHR solution. SYNNEX will
utilize its dedicated SYNNEX Healthcare Solutions team of associates within
sales, training, marketing and technical support to recruit, train and support
new partners for the Allscripts exclusive reseller community.

With direct access to an integrated Electronic Health Record and practice
management solution, Allscripts authorized resellers in the SYNNEX Healthcare
Solutions network can establish and build a healthcare initiative to address
the growing interest among physicians in qualifying for significant new
federal incentive payments. Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
(ARRA) of 2009, physicians who use an EHR can earn the maximum incentive over
five years, beginning in fiscal 2011. Widespread use of Electronic Health
Records is one of the central tenets of President Barack Obama’s plan to
improve healthcare quality, safety and efficiency.

The Allscripts MyWay EHR offers Electronic Health Record, practice
management and claims management. The integrated solution automates everyday
clinical and business tasks while electronically connecting physicians and
other caregivers to pharmacies, labs, insurers and other key healthcare
stakeholders. Designed specifically to meet the needs of small physician
practices, the Allscripts MyWay EHR is available via Software as a Service
(SaaS) over the Internet or as an on-premise application installed on a
server. The web-based SaaS approach provides additional flexibility by
enabling physician practices to avoid many upfront and ongoing expenses tied
to equipment, IT personnel and operations. Small practices can focus solely on
treating patients, while letting Allscripts handle technology components such
as maintaining servers, performing backups, installing upgrades, and managing
firewalls and security.

“SYNNEX continues to do an excellent job at looking at the healthcare
vertical differently than the other contenders by enabling distribution of
complete end-to-end solutions that are adaptable and solve business critical
issues,” stated John Hughes, Founder and President at eDocSecure, Inc.
( an authorized Allscripts reseller that is also part of
the SYNNEX Healthcare Solutions network. “In particular, this partnership with
Allscripts accelerates distribution and adoption of a full turn-key EHR
solution by end user physicians through Allscripts resellers in the SYNNEX
Healthcare Solutions network, and takes the guess work out of the equation for
physicians to implement.”

“To qualify for the maximum amount of federal incentives, physicians must
have an electronic health record in place and must be using it in their
everyday practice as soon as possible,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive
Officer of Allscripts. “We are pleased to partner with SYNNEX to provide
independent physicians and small groups a practical, cost effective way to
enter the electronic healthcare highway from a trusted partner.”

“Our partnership enables us to equip Allscripts authorized resellers in
the SYNNEX Healthcare Solutions network with a real and complete healthcare
solution that solves compliance and workflow issues. What independent
physicians and small medical practices need is a total solution that improves
their productivity and controls costs instead of trying to implement a pick,
pack and ship offering,” stated Peter Larocque, President of U.S. Distribution
at SYNNEX Corporation. “We are delighted to be partnering with Allscripts to
further establish our SYNNEX Healthcare Solutions initiative within the
burgeoning healthcare space.”
