CONCORD, N.C & CHICAGO, Sep 13, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Allscripts (Nasdaq:MDRX) the leading provider of
clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that
physicians use to improve healthcare, today announced that NorthEast
Medical Center will electronically connect their physicians across 33
locations using TouchWorks(TM) Electronic Health Record.

Under a previous agreement, NorthEast Medical Center deployed the
Allscripts e-Prescribing solution. Immediate results included the
ability for physicians to manage medications for patients across the
continuum of care. With the added functionality of the TouchWorks
Electronic Health Record (EHR), under a new agreement, NorthEast
physicians have the ability communicate the full patient record, where
appropriate, with all stakeholders in the healthcare delivery process.

“Absolute commitment to service and clinical excellence is our
mission at NorthEast Medical Center,” said Keith McNeice, VP & Chief
Information Officer of NorthEast Medical Center. “We have a
significant number of patients that move throughout our provider
network, and we believe the best way to facilitate our mission at the
point-of-care was to adopt an Electronic Health Record. With
TouchWorks, physicians will have instant access to their patient
records at any of our 33 clinic facilities, as well as from the
hospital, emergency center, or their home.”

The Electronic Health Record will enable NorthEast physicians to
enhance their progressive disease management program. The Allscripts
solution provides a sophisticated platform that allows physicians to
better manage and track patients with chronic diseases.

“NorthEast Medical Center is a perfect example supporting the idea
that electronic prescribing is the first step towards an Electronic
Health Record,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of
Allscripts. “After experiencing positive results with Allscripts’
e-prescribing solution, NorthEast Medical Center’s physicians are
expanding their functionality and will now be able to leverage the
full capabilities of our EHR and, ultimately, help lead the way in the
national push for healthcare transformation.”
