Mr. Moritz was most recently Director of Enterprise Security Strategy for
Chicago-based CNA, the 7th largest U.S. commercial insurer and the 14th
largest U.S. property & casualty insurer, with 2006 revenues of $10.4 billion.
At CNA, Mr. Moritz had primary responsibility for the insurer’s risk
mitigation strategy and supporting infrastructure.

“As the use and importance of Electronic Health Records expands, it’s not
enough to simply respond to security issues that arise concerning the privacy
and security of patient information — leading companies will proactively
address the security issue,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of
Allscripts. “Troy’s experience maintaining the security of financial
information for some of the world’s top banking and insurance companies, who
are the acknowledged leaders in security threat prevention, will help
Allscripts continue to meet this critically important goal. His hiring is an
indication of our commitment to this important subject.”

Prior to joining CNA in 2003, Mr. Moritz was a security strategist at UBS
Warburg, a leading global investment banking and securities firm, where he was
responsible for security and designs for financial technologies. Prior to UBS
Warburg, Mr. Moritz played key leadership roles at Bank of Montreal, Abbott
Laboratories, Unilever, Information Resources, the Chicago Board of Trade, and
Perot Systems. He holds over 20 industry certifications from Cisco,
Checkpoint, Microsoft, ISC2, PMI and others, and has served as author and
subject matter expert for CompTIA’s Network+, Internet+ and Server+ technology
certifications. A member of the U.S. Secret Service’s Computer Electronic
Crimes Taskforce, his security strategies have been implemented by numerous
governmental agencies, and in 2005 he was recognized by the Department of
Homeland Security for his work designing secure corporate infrastructures.

“I am excited to be joining the senior leadership team of Allscripts, and
looking forward to helping deliver on one of the most important security
promises in the world today — the privacy and security of personal health
information,” said Mr. Moritz. “Real security can only be achieved if you are
continually vigilant and Allscripts is committed to preemptively enhancing its
products to meet security threats before and as they unfold.”

Mr. Moritz holds an Executive Masters of Business Administration degree
from the University of Notre Dame.
