2005–Allscripts (Nasdaq:MDRX), the leading provider of clinical
software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians use
to improve healthcare today announced that University of Florida
Jacksonville Physicians, Inc. (UFJPI) has expanded its current
contract to provide a full Electronic Health Record (EHR) to more than
300 physicians.

UFJPI experienced immediate positive results from the initial
deployment of the TouchWorks(TM) Electronic Health Record, including
the ability to handle increased patient visits, significantly reduce
calls from pharmacies and offer physicians access to information
anywhere at anytime, improving the quality of care for patients.

“As we continue to deploy TouchWorks Electronic Health Record,
many of our physicians are requesting to automate all of their daily
tasks,” said Mari Beth Anderson, Director of Information Systems at
University of Florida Jacksonville Physicians, Inc. “Allscripts
modular approach has created a user-friendly learning experience. The
Electronic Health Record is becoming a standard of care for
organizations like ours and we felt it was critical to take the next
step towards a paperless environment.”

The modularity of the Allscripts solution provides the ability to
deploy an entire EHR or individual modules. This flexibility enables
practices, like UFJPI to customize their Electronic Health Record
deployment strategy.

UFJPI is also adding functionality that will enhance connectivity
and will enable physicians to share critical patient information
across their 31-clinic network. Physicians will be able to order lab
tests and decrease the turnaround time for results review.

“Deploying an Electronic Health Record successfully is not just
about software. It’s about understanding how physicians, associated
caregivers, support personnel and key processes need to change to get
the software used. University of Florida Jacksonville Physicians, Inc.
designed a modular deployment that fit their unique needs and the
results speak for themselves,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive
Officer of Allscripts. “UFJPI is setting the standard for high quality
healthcare in the State of Florida.”


Created in 1971 and established as a non-profit corporation in
1979 using the name University Hospital Academic Fund, the
organization was later renamed University of Florida Jacksonville
Physicians, Inc. (UFJPI). UFJPI physicians are employees of the
University of Florida in Gainesville and hold academic or clinical
appointments with permanent positions in Jacksonville. UFJPI has 325
physicians who are members of 16 departments, representing the
traditional major specialties and primary care.
