Amarillo Diagnostic Clinic, founded in 1968 as Amarillo’s first
comprehensive outpatient diagnostic clinic, includes three offices and a new
ambulatory surgery center. The clinic combines multi-specialty care with
diagnostic capabilities including nuclear medicine, a state-of-the-art heart
center with vascular ultrasound and echocardiography, a full diagnostic
imaging center including CAT, PET and MRI technology, a sleep-disorders
center, and clinical and neurodiagnostics laboratories.

“We want to be the first place that people come for quality care and the
clear market leader in using technology to improve patient care,” said Alan
Kennon, Administrator of Amarillo Diagnostic Clinic. “Allscripts provides our
physicians instant access to the latest patient information anytime and
anywhere, while consolidating our billing, scheduling and order entry for
greater efficiency and patient satisfaction.”

HealthMatics Office combines the power of HealthMatics Electronic Health
Record and HealthMatics Ntierprise Practice Management to provide one
full-circle, seamless patient information management solution. Built on a
single intelligent platform, HealthMatics Office links Amarillo Diagnostic
Clinic’s business and clinical sides and provides caregivers instant and
secure access to the complete patient record in the clinic, at the hospital or

After a two-year search, Amarillo Diagnostic Clinic selected Allscripts
for its simple user interface, comprehensive functionality, and 24-hour
365-day technical support.

“Our first thought was to purchase HealthMatics EHR and attach it to our
old practice management system, but then we decided that HealthMatics
Ntierprise was more flexible and easier to use,” said Lindsey Tubbs,
Amarillo’s Director of Business Operations. “A major selling point was the
Electronic Health Record’s flexible templates, which make it easy for
individual physicians in different specialties to customize the EHR for their
own requirements.”

Allscripts Chief Executive Officer Glen Tullman commented, “We always look
to partner with world-class organizations like the Amarillo Diagnostic Clinic,
who share our commitment to using the latest software and technology to
enhance patient care. By providing physicians with better information and
enhancing their connectivity to other healthcare stakeholders, Amarillo
expects to realize solid returns in the quality of care they provide and the
cost of that care.”
