NEW YORK and CHICAGO, Mar 12, 2003 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ —
Live Demo via Satellite From Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene During Keynote Address
Intel(R) Centrino(TM) mobile technology launch today in New York, Intel will
highlight the benefits of their new mobile platform for the healthcare industry
through a live demonstration of TouchWorks(TM), a product of Allscripts
Healthcare Solutions (Nasdaq: MDRX). Don Caruso, M.D., Department Chair of
Family Practice at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene and recent
winner of the 2003 Microsoft Healthcare Users Group Physician of the Year Award,
will demonstrate how the TouchWorks modular electronic medical record (mEMR(TM))
will leverage the capabilities of Intel Centrino mobile technology to deliver
Just Right, Just-in-Time Information(R) to physicians at the point of care.
Intel Centrino mobile technology was built from the ground up specifically for
wireless hardware platforms — delivering breakthrough performance and enabling
extended battery life in thinner, lighter devices. These mobile computing
features enhance the performance of electronic medical record (EMR) solutions,
like TouchWorks, in a wireless setting. The Intel Centrino mobile technology
eliminates the need for additional hardware to support a wireless network and
reduces the amount of time a physician must recharge a mobile device.
“Allscripts Healthcare Solutions is proud that Dr. Caruso and TouchWorks were
selected to demonstrate the functionality of the Intel Centrino platform,”
commented Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts Healthcare
Solutions. “Through our partnerships with industry leaders like Intel,
Allscripts Healthcare Solutions focuses on developing innovative solutions for
physicians that improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare. Our users will
benefit from the lower cost of ownership which this technology provides and
which we will leverage through our software. With Intel Centrino mobile
technology, we move ever closer to making our TouchWorks solution as
indispensable as the stethoscope.”
Representatives from AHS will offer additional demonstrations of the TouchWorks
EMR solution at the Intel Centrino mobile technology showcase.
