BETHPAGE, N.Y. & CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 19,
2006–Allscripts (Nasdaq:MDRX), the leading provider of clinical
software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians use
to improve healthcare, today announced that Integrated Medical
Professionals has selected HealthMatics(R) Office to automate clinical
and financial operations for its 31 physicians. The solution from A4
Health Systems, an Allscripts subsidiary, integrates the HealthMatics
Electronic Health Record (EHR) with the Ntierprise(R) Practice
Management System (PMS), and will enable the clinical and
administrative sides of the practice to work hand-in-hand for better
communication and improved accuracy.
Integrated Medical Professionals is a multi-specialty group
composed of 13 different practices on Long Island. The practices
combined to leverage technology costs across a broader base and to use
automation to improve patient care and drive practice efficiencies.
“We want to provide the best possible therapeutic care to our
patients and operate our offices as efficiently as possible,” said
Price Dunaway, Chief Operating Officer of Integrated Medical
Professionals. “The only way to get the efficiencies that you need to
run a successful practice today is to have an Electronic Health Record
that is fully integrated with practice management. We believe
HealthMatics Office is that system.”
HealthMatics Office will provide instant access to patient records
for Integrated Medical Professionals physicians and business office
staff. Built on a single intelligent platform, the Allscripts solution
features robust clinical tools such as health maintenance, decision
support, medical necessity checking and electronic prescribing.
Integrated Medical Professionals selected Allscripts both for its
powerful EHR-PMS platform and because HealthMatics Office easily
interfaces with various technology platforms across the different
specialties in the group.
“Clearly Allscripts not only had the platform but the technology
background and desire to integrate with our other IT systems,” said
Theodore Felderman, MD, chair of the IT committee at Integrated
Medical Professionals. “But it’s not just the product that convinced
us. It was the people behind the product. Allscripts is a company
that’s willing to step up and partner with us to get the job done. We
were pleasantly surprised to find, at all levels of the company, a
real willingness and a desire to help us achieve our goals.”
Felderman said Integrated Medical Professionals will implement
Ntierprise PMS in all 13 locations by July 1, in just six weeks’ time.
Deployment of HealthMatics EHR will follow soon after the practice
management solution’s implementation.
“We are excited to partner with Integrated Medical Professionals
to deliver the most efficient, effective medicine to the patients of
Long Island,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of
Allscripts. “Urology and other specialties are a key focus of our
organization and having strong partners is critical to ongoing
development of both software and content. Our mission is to provide
physicians with tools that are so effective, they become indispensable
to the practice of medicine.”
