CHICAGO, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Allscripts announced today that
Tully-Wihr Company, in conjunction with Ray Morgan Company, has signed a
definitive agreement to resell the web-based Allscripts MyWay(TM) Electronic
Health Record (EHR) and practice management solution to 100 physicians.


Founded in 1906, Tully-Wihr has been building forms management solutions
for the health care community for more than 40 years. Today, the company’s
more than 60 hospital clients and their thousands of affiliated physicians use
its Web-To-Print solutions and other services to manage the design,
purchasing, storage, inventory control, and distribution of paper forms.

The Ray Morgan Company (RMC), founded in Chico California in 1956, has
over 50 years experience providing a full range of document output solutions
to clients large and small. RMC helps their clients manage and control
overall costs of document input and output through their experience utilizing
several state-of-the-art processes.

“For 103 years, Tully-Wihr has been helping our hospital and physician
clients handle the thousands of paper forms required in healthcare, and now
we’re excited to provide them a Web-based solution for taking paper out of the
equation and automating the way they provide patient care and run their
businesses with Allscripts,” said George W. Smith, CDC, Senior Vice
President/Partner at Tully-Wihr. “As the federal government, payers and
physicians themselves continue to move towards electronic healthcare,
Tully-Whir is well positioned to help our clients step into the digital era
with the nation’s leading provider of electronic health records and practice
management solutions.”

The Allscripts EHR, available as both a hosted Software as a Service
(SaaS) and on-premise solution, offers robust capabilities for Electronic
Health Records, practice management and claims management. Designed to help
small physician practices overcome cost and IT complexity barriers, the
Electronic Health Record offers many features that make it simple and
intuitive for the user, including:

— Offline Synchronization: Physicians can be productive anywhere, any
time, even without an Internet connection. Caregivers’ offline changes and
entries are automatically synchronized to update records when they reconnect

— Adaptive Learning: The EHR learns and adapts to each user’s patterns
and preferences, making workflow and charting faster and easier

— Intelligent Navigation: Relevant clinical content is automatically
displayed based on presenting symptoms, even suggesting next logical entry
options. Users can move freely throughout the application without enter/exit

— Template-Free Charting: Physicians can use their preferred workflow, so
they can navigate wherever they need to in the application to document
multiple complaints or easily handle multiple patients

— Easy Customization: Physicians and other caregivers using the solution
can quickly change and customize screens to match their individual preferences

“Independent physicians and small groups are looking for a way to enter
the electronic healthcare highway with affordable costs, minimal IT investment
and management requirements, and a product that is easy to learn. We believe
our hosted electronic health record offering is the right answer right now,”
said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “We will also
benefit from Tully-Wihr’s 103 years of experience building strong
relationships with the leading healthcare organizations in Northern
California. Given the value we place on relationships with our clients,
Tully-Wihr is an ideal partner. We’re looking forward to working together to
help the region’s physicians improve the health of their patients and their
own bottom lines.”

Tully-Wihr will integrate its own marketing communications services with
the Allscripts EHR, providing physician practices a single-source solution for
all of their clinical, practice management and integrated marketing needs.
