2004–Allscripts Healthcare Solutions (Nasdaq:MDRX), the leading
provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions
that physicians use to improve healthcare, announced today that
Cornerstone Health Care, one of the largest multi-specialty groups in
North Carolina, will implement the TouchWorks electronic medical
record (EMR) for use by more than 100 of their providers across
twenty-six locations. This technology will enable Cornerstone
physicians to create and manage patient records electronically, with
access available from their offices, the hospital or their homes when
they are on call.

“TouchWorks provides us with a tremendous opportunity to enhance
the quality and efficiency of the care we provide our growing base of
patients,” said Grace Terrell, MD, MMM, President of Cornerstone
Health Care. “The benefits of access to all of a patient’s medical
information at the point of care by their primary and specialty
providers will result in increases in accuracy, decreases in physician
paperwork and most importantly, more patient care time for our
physicians. The many advantages of a paperless records system have
been experienced by practices of our size across the nation, and we
look forward to sharing them with our patients.” Dr. Terrell added
that Cornerstone would be rolling out the implementation in spring
2005 with complete participation targeted for a year later.

“We are excited to have Cornerstone as a client,” commented Glen
Tullman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts Healthcare
Solutions. “Our partnership with IDX offers Cornerstone ready-made
integration of EMR and practice management solutions, resulting in
rapidly attainable workflow efficiencies.”

Cornerstone will integrate TouchWorks with their existing
Groupcast(TM) practice management solution from IDX Systems
Corporation. The integration of TouchWorks and Groupcast will directly
link clinical and financial activities and drive operational
