                EHR for More Than 400 Physicians and Residents

CHICAGO and LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Allscripts
(Nasdaq: MDRX), the leading provider of clinical software, connectivity and
information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, announced
today that University Physicians Associates (UPA), the medical faculty group
for the University of Louisville School of Medicine, will implement the
TouchWorks(TM) Electronic Health Record (EHR) to connect and provide clinical
automation for more than 400 physicians and residents.

The Allscripts EHR solution will enable UPA physicians to have instant
access to clinical records from any of the group’s more than 40 practice
locations, the hospital or remotely, and provide a seamless connection to the
other administrative and clinical systems in use by UPA. Louisville’s largest
multi-specialty physician group, UPA is part of UofL Health Care, the region’s
leading academic, research, and teaching medical center.

“Our partnership with Allscripts improves our ability to create a premier,
patient-focused, integrated physician practice,” said Belinda S. Love, the
Executive Director of the University of Louisville Medical School Practice
Association. “We spent two years evaluating Electronic Health Records and
ultimately selected Allscripts because, unlike the majority of the systems we
saw, it is physician friendly and therefore broadly utilized by physicians.”

With the Electronic Health Record, UPA physicians can automate many of
their daily clinical tasks, such as prescribing medications, ordering lab
tests, viewing test results, making referrals electronically and documenting
clinical encounters. TouchWorks drives clinical excellence by measuring key
performance indicators and providing patient population management, with
alerts to indicate when key disease management indicators fall out of range,
plus tools to review the details of clinical measures such as care planning
statistics, health maintenance and provider productivity.

“Our physicians now will be able to access patient information securely,
anywhere at anytime,” said Jerry Rabalais, M.D., Chairman of UPA. “And the
Electronic Health Record will improve UPA’s ability to provide quality care
while ensuring a state-of-the-art environment for resident and student

Allscripts, as a part of its strategic relationship with IDX (now a part
of GE Healthcare), will provide standardized interoperability between
TouchWorks Electronic Health Record and the Centricity practice management
system (formerly IDX(R) Flowcast(TM)).

“University Physicians Associates is a world-class organization and we are
excited to partner with them as they continue to lead the transformation of
the delivery of healthcare in the Louisville area,” said Glen Tullman, Chief
Executive Officer of Allscripts. “UPA Physicians will also be a part of a new
content development and review program underway at Allscripts.”
