        Multi-Specialty Clinic Brings TouchWorks EMR to 100 Physicians

GALLIPOLIS, Ohio, and CHICAGO, July 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ —
Allscripts Healthcare Solutions (Nasdaq: MDRX), the leading provider of
clinical software and information solutions for physicians, announced today
that Holzer Clinic will expand their use of TouchWorks(TM) and bring the
electronic medical record (EMR) to all of their 100 physicians. Holzer
started using the document management and results viewing capabilities of
TouchWorks three years ago for 25 of their physicians and now will implement
the solution with the entire group, adding functionality for digital
dictation, transcription management, and document imaging.

“Holzer Clinic has been committed to the EMR vision since 1992, but for
most of that time we felt that the industry wasn’t ready,” said James Blevins,
Associate Administrator of Holzer Clinic. “Now the success of our pilot
project, combined with TouchWorks’ excellent functionality, growing position
in the industry, and tight integration with our IDX practice management
system, has made us very comfortable with Allscripts Healthcare Solutions as
our EMR partner. We believe that this project will transform our

TouchWorks uses a modular approach to the electronic medical record, or
mEMR(TM), which enables healthcare organizations, like Holzer, to implement a
full EMR at their own pace, focusing on their specific requirements. As
opposed to the traditional “all-or-nothing” EMR, organizations using the
TouchWorks mEMR strategy can start with the functionality that matters most to
their practice and grow into a full EMR. For Holzer, the path to a full EMR
started with automating their paper-based processes.

“By implementing a paperless EMR with TouchWorks, Holzer physicians will
have better access to the information they need, whenever and wherever they
need it, providing safer and more efficient care for their patients,”
commented Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts Healthcare
