Allscripts ‘Client Experience’ Focused on Education, Stimulus, and
Introduction of Products Key to Vision of Interoperable and Connected System
of Health

ORLANDO, Fla., July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — With a full agenda of
events, education sessions, new product introductions and a wide range of
networking opportunities, Allscripts (Nasdaq: MDRX) today launched its annual
Allscripts Client Experience (ACE) user conference for physicians and
healthcare professionals nationwide. A record 2,700 attendees registered for
the conference, driven by strong interest in Electronic Health Record stimulus
funding provided by the federal government, and by client interest in the full
suite of solutions offered by Allscripts following its October 2008 merger
with Misys Healthcare.


With Stimulus payments authorized by the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act fast approaching, the Allscripts Client Experience provides
attendees a first-hand view of innovation from Allscripts, as well as the
chance to share best practices on systems, deployments and utilization. This
includes previews of upcoming versions of Allscripts Electronic Health
Records, Practice Management, Electronic Prescribing, Revenue Cycle
Management, Emergency Department Information, Care Management, Home Care,
Document Management, and Post-Acute solutions.

Additionally, Allscripts will feature innovations such as the
recently-launched Allscripts Patient Kiosk, enabling physician practices to
reduce the costs and overhead associated with patient check-in, and helping
patients take control of their own healthcare with a dashboard view of their
personal information, including a complete health maintenance plan. Attendees
also will experience Allscripts Remote(TM), providing physicians virtually
anytime, anywhere access to and control of Allscripts Electronic Health
Records. Allscripts Remote is available now for the iPhone(TM), and later this
year for Blackberry and Windows Mobile devices.

“The significant increase in attendance at ACE this year indicates to me
that our clients not only are interested in finding out more about the federal
stimulus funding for electronic health records, but also more about the
company itself and the new solutions we have available as a result of the
merger,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “This week,
we’ll highlight all of those solutions and the opportunity for healthcare
organizations of all sizes, whether physician groups, hospitals or post-acute
facilities, to connect to health with Allscripts.”

The conference features more than 300 educational sessions designed to
help attendees increase their knowledge and efficiency around the applications
they use on a daily basis; general sessions in which Allscripts executives
will outline product strategy and vision; and the Expo Hall, where attendees
will have the chance to interact with more than 50 Allscripts business
partners and expert Allscripts employees for a demonstration of the latest
innovative products and services Allscripts has to offer.

In addition to the official agenda, ACE is about networking. “Over the
years, it’s the face-to-face interactions that are the cornerstone of ACE,”
said Dan Michelson, Chief Marketing Officer of Allscripts. “This is the ideal
forum for customers to meet with Allscripts team members, fellow clients,
business partners, and vendors who truly understand the challenges they face
in trying to improve the quality and lower the cost of healthcare today.”

While the primary beneficiaries of the conference are customers, Michelson
said that Allscripts benefits as well. “Clients who use our systems every day
are the ultimate authority on what works, and what doesn’t,” Michelson said.
“The feedback clients share with us at ACE helps determine where we invest and
how we enhance our solutions.”
