CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 26, 2005–The Physicians
Interactive Group of Allscripts (Nasdaq:MDRX), the leading provider of
clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that
physicians use to improve healthcare, today announced their selection
by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc (BIPI) to be the
preferred provider of e-Detailing services across multiple therapeutic
areas. The Physicians Interactive Group of Allscripts has established
itself as the market leader of online clinical information and
education solutions for physicians and healthcare professionals.

With the plethora of available information, patients are becoming
more educated on the prescription drugs they consume and require their
physician to have even greater levels of product knowledge. With time
at a premium, it is becoming increasingly difficult for physicians to
find time in the workday to gather the information they need to make
informed decisions at the point-of-care. PI e-Detailing(TM) brings
this information to the physician in a simple way that fits into their
schedule, utilizing the power of the Internet to connect physicians to
emerging clinical information through interactive educational programs
available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

“We are excited to be able to provide these services to BIPI,”
said Mark Thierer, President of the Physicians Interactive Group of
Allscripts. “Our vision is to develop innovative solutions that are
indispensable to physicians. PI e-Detailing provides physicians
anytime, anywhere access to educational programs on the latest
clinical studies, safety reports, and efficacy findings, delivering
the right information to support evidenced-based clinical decisions.”

The Physicians Interactive Group of Allscripts is the leading
provider of e-Detailing and other clinical information and patient
adherence solutions that connect healthcare providers to the forefront
of medicine. Allscripts has developed over 450 online programs for
more than 100 brands in every stage of the product life cycle.
Continuing its leadership in the industry, Allscripts works with more
than 50 pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device clients, including
eight of the top 10 worldwide pharmaceutical firms.
