      Enable Improved Clinical Interactions at the Point of Care

Allscripts (Nasdaq:MDRX), the leading provider of clinical
software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians use

Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of drug and medical
information services and content to physicians. This partnership joins

Allscripts penetration into the ambulatory physician market.
Physicians will gain enhanced, customizable content that will greatly

Allscripts products access to pre-built templates for documenting
patient care, including the latest scientific and clinical information
about drug therapies, and evidence-based treatment guidelines to

“Physicians have come to appreciate and rely upon the electronic

partnership with Allscripts extends our reach into this area and
cements our position in the eHealthcare space. Together we’ve created
an environment where physicians and patients both can benefit.”

Wolters Kluwer Health plans to develop customizable documentation
templates, order sets, care plans and best practices for use in the
TouchWorks(TM) and Healthmatics(R) Electronic Health Record solutions,
and other Allscripts applications. Physicians will be able to share in
a library of templates appropriate to their area of specialty;
pre-built templates for documenting patient care will include the
latest scientific and clinical information about drug therapies, and
evidence-based treatment guidelines to support clinical decisions.

“Integrating quality content that informs physicians and their
patients is the next stage in the development of the Electronic Health
Record, and this strategic agreement with Wolters Kluwer Health is all
about taking that step,” said Lee Shapiro, President of Allscripts.

point of care to improve the quality of the clinical interactions that
physicians have. The combination of Wolters Kluwer Health’s clinical
content and global presence, with our strength in delivering
Electronic Health Record solutions to physicians will help support
physicians in improving patient care.”
