CHICAGO and DULUTH, Ga., Feb. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Allscripts
(Nasdaq: MDRX), the leading provider of clinical software, connectivity and
information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, today

practices along the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast.

True North, a leading provider of on-demand software solutions for
healthcare organizations, purchased HealthMatics licenses under the agreement
to incorporate into their Total Office Medical(TM) online solution, and will
offer them to physicians at a reduced rate as part of a federal grant program.
True North was selected by Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) in Atlanta, the
regional Hurricane Katrina relief center, under a grant from the US Department
of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
to electronically enable and restore physician practices hit hardest by the
2005 hurricane.

Additionally, Allscripts has selected True North as its partner in
delivering HealthMatics Office nationally via the Application Service Provider
(ASP) model. True North — through its Northstar(TM) network — will make
HealthMatics Office accessible anywhere at anytime, disaster proof, and
secure. HealthMatics Office ( )
combines HealthMatics Electronic Health Record and HealthMatics Ntierprise(R)
Practice Management on one intelligent platform that provides practices with
an easy-to-use patient information management solution.

“The physician practices of the Gulf Coast needed a solution that provided
everything, including software licenses, on-demand infrastructure, training
and support,” said Doug Nassaur, Chief Executive Officer of True North. “We
assessed countless EHR and practice management vendors, and identified
Allscripts as the ideal solution for physicians in this region thanks to
HealthMatics ease of use, its affordability and the industry’s strongest track
record for client support.”

With this grant, both companies turned their attention to supporting
Katrina-devastated facilities and victims, establishing Health Information
Technology (HIT) infrastructure in underserved communities, and promoting the
adoption of a combined EHR and PM in general.

“Allscripts and True North share a combined vision that healthcare
professionals need to focus their time, effort, and money on caring for
patients — not managing technology,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive
Officer of Allscripts. “Our proven leadership in the Electronic Health Record
and practice management market, together with the power of True North’s
on-demand system, will revolutionize healthcare delivery in these physician
practices, where it’s truly needed the most.”

HealthMatics Office is a flexible and easily customizable solution for
small and mid-sized physician practices. The combined solution enables
clinical and practice management groups to work hand-in-hand for better
communication and improved accuracy.
