Co-Founder of Eclipsys Brings 30 Years of Hospital Software Sales Experience to New Role

CHICAGO, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Allscripts, the leading
provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that
physicians use to improve healthcare, announced today that Terrence Macaleer
has joined the company as Vice President of Sales for the company’s Enterprise
Solutions Group. Mr. Macaleer will lead the company’s sales and strategy team
focused on delivering Allscripts Electronic Health Record and ePrescribing
solutions via the increasingly popular collaboration between hospitals, health
systems and community medical groups.


A prominent figure in the healthcare information technology industry, Mr.
Macaleer brings 30 years experience to Allscripts, including key roles in
building two of the nation’s early and most successful hospital enterprise
software companies.

Mr. Macaleer began his career at Shared Medical Systems Corporation (SMS),
a pioneer in healthcare IT, where he spent 23 years and rose to Senior Vice
President of US Operations, helping to grow the company from start-up to
nearly $1 billion in annual revenues. In 1996, he left SMS to found Eclipsys
along with SMS co-founder Harvey J. Wilson. As Senior Vice President of
Eclipsys, Mr. Macaleer played a central role in growing the company into one
of the nation’s largest hospital enterprise software companies, including
recruiting and training the first sales force, and leading all sales duties
for the company with annual bookings of more than $300 million.

In addition to his roles at SMS and Eclipsys, Mr. Macaleer founded and
served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Carefx, a Scottsdale, Ariz.
company that provides software designed to eliminate medical errors to more
than 300 hospitals.

“As more hospitals take advantage of changes in the law that let them
subsidize the cost of electronic health records and electronic prescribing
technology to physicians in their communities, Terry Macaleer will help
Allscripts grow revenue opportunities in this increasingly important market,”
said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “We are confident
that Terry’s broad knowledge of the acute care market will help us reach the
total hospital base, especially community hospitals, where our products
connect to more touchpoints than ever before.”

Recent changes to federal regulations make it easier for hospitals to fund
technologies that better connect them with non-employed physicians. The
federal Stark regulation, which generally limits the scope of
hospital-physician relationships, has been modified to enable hospitals to
assist non-employed physicians in adopting Electronic Health Record and
electronic prescribing solutions that enhance patient safety and quality of
care. The change has resulted in sales of Allscripts Electronic Health Record
solutions to more than 1,000 physicians affiliated with hospitals across the

“With the change in the Stark rules, the collaboration between physicians
and hospitals in adopting healthcare IT is the next frontier in this industry,
and Allscripts is the company best positioned to take advantage of the
opportunity,” said Mr. Macaleer. “I look forward to this new challenge and to
working with the dynamic leadership team at Allscripts to deliver on the
company’s vision of providing solutions that effectively connect physicians to
one another, to hospitals in their communities and across the entire
healthcare system.”

Mr. Macaleer holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from
Princeton University.
