MedNetwoRx is an Application Service Provider (ASP) that hosts and
supports clinical and practice management software for more than 1,000
physicians across Texas. The company will initially provide 45 physicians with
the TouchWorks Electronic Health Record and another 70 physicians with the
TouchWorks Practice Management solution.

“Practices today, especially smaller groups, want the benefits of a system
like TouchWorks but the simplicity of an ASP model, and now we offer both,”
said Mark Johnson, President of MedNetwoRx. “Our physician clients are very
excited by the prospect of using the Electronic Health Record to improve
patient care and better manage their practices.”

Additionally, MedNetwoRx will provide the combined Electronic Health
Record and Practice Management solution to Dallas-based MedXpress, Inc. for
use initially in five Dallas-area medical clinics inside Minyard grocery
stores. MedXpress clinics provide walk-in medical services inside large retail
outlets with fast, convenient and affordable treatment for routine medical
conditions and preventive care.

“Allscripts enables MedXpress to offer our patients the convenience,
safety and efficiency of the latest technology breakthroughs in clinical
information management,” said Stephen Jones, President of MedXpress. “We not
only can provide fast, easy, affordable healthcare, but we have the ability to
view your latest procedures, illnesses, allergies and other vital clinical
information to ensure the highest possible quality care.”

The web-based TouchWorks Electronic Health Record (EHR) enables physicians
to instantly access patient information when and where they need it — in the
clinic, at the hospital or while on-call at home. TouchWorks speeds and
automates everyday clinical tasks such as prescribing and refilling
medications, ordering and viewing tests, and documenting care. TouchWorks
Practice Management (PM) combines sophisticated scheduling and financial
management tools in a single package and incorporates advanced features such
as rule-based appointment scheduling, multi-resource and recurring appointment
features, referral and eligibility indicators, and appointment and claims
management. The combined EHR-PM solution is built on a single intelligent
platform with Microsoft SQL Server technology to meet the clinical and
administrative needs of medical groups across the country.

MedNetwoRx selected Allscripts for the company’s stability, its strong
reputation for client support, and its ability to deliver reliable,
interoperable, high-performance clinical and financial solutions.

“We’re excited to partner with MedNetwoRx to deliver our Electronic Health
Record and Practice Management solution to physicians throughout Texas,” said
Allscripts Chief Executive Officer Glen Tullman. “As more patients and
physicians request electronic information to improve the quality of care, we
will continue to provide our technology through innovative delivery models,
such as the ASP, that are flexible enough for physicians in large and small
