ORLANDO, Fla., Feb 23, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) — From the floor of
the 2004 HIMSS (Healthcare Information Management Systems Society)
Annual Conference and Exposition, Allscripts Healthcare Solutions
(Nasdaq:MDRX), the leading provider of clinical software, connectivity
and information solutions for physicians, announced today the launch
of TouchWorks(TM) version 9.2, the latest edition of their
award-winning electronic medical record (EMR). During the convention,
at booth #3745, AHS representatives will demonstrate v9.2 features
-- TouchWorks Forms -- Web-Based Dictation -- Advanced User Interface -- Imagecast(TM) Integration -- Enhanced Reporting TouchWorks Forms
TouchWorks v9.2 enables users to create and customize digital
versions of the current paper forms used within their organization.
Users can quickly easily generate graphical electronic forms complete
with fields, drop-down boxes, look-up lists, and tables and then save
the form directly into the EMR. Forms can be edited on-line, routed,
and electronically signed, serving as a powerful tool for eliminating
paper in physician practices.
TouchWorks v9.2 introduces the ability to dictate directly into a
structured note in the patient’s electronic medical record. Utilizing
an easy-to-use microphone, dictation can be captured on-line with a
Tablet PC or desktop workstation.
Advanced User Interface
This exciting new user interface improves the overall ease of use
and allows for personalization of toolbars and menus. The new
framework also provides users with the ability to view multiple
screens, providing the ability to review a number of sections of a
patient’s chart within a single view of the electronic record.
Many physician practices require quick and easy access to Picture
Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) systems, such as
Imagecast, an imaging solution developed by IDX Systems Corporation
(Nasdaq: IDXC). The ability to see these images in an EMR together
with the associated results report of a radiology exam is a real
benefit to clinicians. This new feature in v9.2 enables TouchWorks
users to link quickly to images in IDX Imagecast, integrating images
and information from across the healthcare enterprise.
TouchWorks v9.2 helps administrators access up-to-date clinical
information with brand new reporting categories and reporting options.
The updated reporting infrastructure provides new graphical search
criteria using powerful filters and sorts. Reports are easy to access,
providing a convenient way to get to the real-time information
required by physician practices.
