    ERIE, Pa. & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 26, 2005--

     EHR to Seamlessly Integrate with Existing IDX(R) Flowcast(R)
                    Revenue Cycle Management System

Allscripts, (Nasdaq:MDRX), the leading provider of clinical
software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians use
to improve healthcare, today announced that Saint Vincent Health
System will implement the Allscripts electronic health record solution
for its more than 50 primary and specialty physicians in the Saint
Vincent Medical Group.

Saint Vincent Health System will use the electronic health record
(EHR) to connect physicians to each other and to the entire community
of care including patients, hospitals, labs, pharmacies and payors
providing a more seamless patient experience. The EHR gives physicians
the mobility they need to provide a higher standard of patient care
because Saint Vincent Health System (SVHS) physicians will have
immediate access to patient information anywhere and anytime via the
web-based software.

Saint Vincent Health System will integrate TouchWorks with its
existing IDX(R) Flowcast(R) revenue cycle management solution from IDX
Systems Corporation. Allscripts and IDX share a 10-year strategic
relationship that will directly link clinical and financial
information to support operational improvements at Saint Vincent
Health System’s physician practices.

“In our review of electronic health records, Saint Vincent Health
System was looking for the solution that would best integrate with the
practice management solution from our existing vendor. It was clear
that Allscripts was both the safe and proven choice,” said Richard
Cogley, M.D., Senior Vice President of Medical Affairs for Saint
Vincent Health System. “Allscripts has a proven well-established
integration with IDX. However, as we went through the process, what
became just as critical to us was the flexibility of the modular
implementation approach. This provides our physicians the ability to
learn the software at their own pace and will accelerate the adoption
of health information technology within our group. Lastly, in checking
with their reference sites, it was very clear Allscripts consistently
delivers for their clients.”

Recently, Saint Vincent Health Center, an affiliate of Saint
Vincent Health System, was named among the nation’s Top Performance
Improvement Leaders by a provider of strategic business and clinical
information for the healthcare industry. The health center was the
only hospital in Erie County and one of just three hospitals in
Pennsylvania to be named to this select list.

“Saint Vincent Health System is another great example of both our
traction and our proven ability to deliver for IDX clients,” said Glen
Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “Saint Vincent will
leverage their current investment in their practice management system
with seamless integration to the Allscripts solution. We congratulate
Saint Vincent Health System for their leadership in putting in place
the tools to create a safer and more efficient way of practicing
