PHILADELPHIA, Oct 29, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ — Allscripts, the leading
provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that
physicians use to improve healthcare, today announced from the floor of the
Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) Annual Conference several
mid-size physician groups that have selected a web-hosted version of the
company’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM)
software. Like many of the groups attending MGMA, these physician practices
want to focus on delivering healthcare while leaving the information
technology management to someone else. Hosting Allscripts remotely provides a
simple, affordable means of delivering vital patient information to
caregivers, anytime and anywhere, without the need to purchase servers or hire
new IT personnel. This Application Service Provider (ASP) delivery model also
speeds deployment of the technology and is becoming an increasingly important
option for mid-size and independent practices.


To provide this service, Allscripts works closely with Tellurian Networks
and other hosted service providers to deliver the company’s integrated EHR-PM
solution remotely. Tellurian, a nationwide provider of hosting solutions,
ensures that Allscripts is disaster-proof, secure and accessible by authorized
caregivers anywhere in the world.

“Allscripts and Tellurian believe that many physician practice groups want
to focus their time, effort, and money on caring for patients, not managing
technology,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “By
combining our proven leadership in the electronic health record and practice
management market, together with the power of Tellurian’s ASP hosting model,
we’re making it easier for mid-sized physician practices to enter the
electronic healthcare highway.”

Among other physician groups across the country, Deborah Heart and Lung
Center in Brown Hills, New Jersey; HealthFirst Physicians of Arkansas, in Hot
Springs, Arkansas; and The Heart Center in Poughkeepsie, New York have all
chosen the Allscripts ASP option to add or extend services to their physician
and provider groups.

“Our physicians were already convinced that they wanted Allscripts because
they feel it is the best electronic health record available, and the value
proposition of no initial capital outlay for servers and maintenance sealed
the deal,” said Julie Lennox, Administrative Director of Ambulatory Care for
Deborah Heart and Lung Center, which will implement Allscripts in its Advanced
Heart Lung and Vascular Care ambulatory care center, as well as other
community-based physician practices. “We also like that the hosted solution
provides instant access to patient information at both our hospital-based
outpatient clinic and our ambulatory clinic.”

David Daniello, Chief Financial Officer of The Heart Center, said his
organization wanted to own and control the software and database but felt they
lacked the resources to host the solution internally. “Our physicians want to
be in the business of providing excellent patient care, not maintaining a
complex technology system,” said Daniello. “We were impressed that, by
working with Tellurian, Allscripts is able to offer 24-7 redundancy,
monitoring and support by expert technicians, and HIPAA-compliant security.”

The Electronic Health Record functionality of the integrated Allscripts
solution automates everyday clinical tasks such as prescribing and refilling
medications, ordering and reviewing tests, and documenting patient care.
Allscripts Practice Management functionality combines sophisticated scheduling
and financial management tools in a single package. The combined solution
enables the clinical and business sides of a practice to work hand-in-hand for
greater efficiency and improved quality of care at lower cost.
