                                and California

                               Medical Clinics

CHICAGO and ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ —
Allscripts (Nasdaq: MDRX), the leading provider of clinical software and
information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, announced
today that Sandia National Laboratories has selected the company’s integrated
Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) solution to
automate and connect clinical and administrative processes for Sandia’s
on-site medical clinics.


Sandia is a multi-program lab, primarily doing national defense R&D,
energy, and environment projects. One of the foremost technical institutions
in the world, Sandia is dedicated to developing science-based technologies
that support U.S. national security. Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin
company, manages Sandia National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of
Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration.

Sandia’s selection of the combined Allscripts Electronic Health Record and
Practice Management solution for integrated clinical and back-office
automation reflects a growing national trend. According to Hewitt and
Associates, a major human resources services firm, US employers spend between
$6,000 and $8,000 per worker for health insurance. In an effort to control
costs, large employers such as Sandia are choosing to provide their own
healthcare in on-site clinics — and many are embracing healthcare information
technology to increase the efficiency of their physicians and support staff.

“Allscripts will help Sandia continue to provide our thousands of
employees with the highest standard of medical care available, in our on-site
clinics,” said Linda Duffy, M.D., Director of Medical Administration for
Sandia. “At Sandia, we pride ourselves on providing preventive health and
disease management services in a convenient location to help keep our
employees healthy, happy and productive. Allscripts will automate and connect
our healthcare team, while making our back office more efficient and

Sandia’s employed physicians and mid-level providers offer a full spectrum
of medical services including urgent care, emergency medical services,
consultations, physical therapy, allergy shots and blood pressure monitoring
for the lab’s 8,500 employees in Albuquerque, NM and Livermore, Calif.
Sandia’s on-site clinics also provide preventative health services, such as
health risk assessments, screenings and health education, as well as a Disease
Management Clinic for the management of prevalent diseases including diabetes,
hyperlipidemia, high blood pressure and their serious complications.

After a comprehensive search, Sandia selected Allscripts based on its
technology, its financial stability, and its experience with the nation’s
leading medical groups, where tens of thousands of physicians use Allscripts
technology every day to provide high quality patient care.

“On-site clinics are becoming increasingly common for forward-looking
employers like Sandia who want to control their healthcare costs while
offering preventive health and wellness services,” said Glen Tullman, Chief
Executive Officer of Allscripts. “Our solution helps employer-owned clinics
deliver that vision of improved care for their employees more

The Electronic Health Record functionality of the integrated Allscripts
solution brings Sandia’s physicians instant access to patient information,
both at the point of care or remotely. Allscripts automates everyday clinical
tasks such as prescribing and refilling medications, ordering and reviewing
tests, and documenting patient care. An easy-to-use and customizable solution,
the Electronic Health Records features robust clinical tools that support safe
medical practices, including health maintenance alerts, clinical decision
support, and automated drug safety checking.

The Practice Management functionality of Allscripts combines sophisticated
scheduling and financial management tools into a single package. Important
features of the solution include rules-based appointment scheduling,
multi-resource and recurring appointment features, referral and eligibility
indicators, and appointment and claims management.
