2005–Allscripts Healthcare Solutions (Nasdaq:MDRX), the leading
provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions
that physicians use to improve healthcare today announced that
Woodland Healthcare, a member of Catholic Healthcare West, the
nation’s eighth largest healthcare system, will deploy the
TouchWorks(TM) Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution to the groups
75 physicians.

Located in California, Woodland Healthcare’s goal in implementing
the TouchWorks EHR is to rapidly move to a paperless environment. The
group will scan all existing patient files into TouchWorks,
eliminating the cost of unnecessary chart pulls and storage space. The
web-based EHR will also connect Woodland Healthcare physicians with
one another and with outside laboratories and pharmacies, allowing
physicians to electronically order and view lab tests, and send

“Implementing Allscripts’ full TouchWorks suite will support our
physicians passion to provide the highest levels of quality, safety
and operational excellence,” said Gary Zufelt, Vice President of
Clinic Operations at Woodland Healthcare in California. “Allscripts
has proven to be the safe and effective choice in multi-specialty
medical groups that are of similar size to Woodland Healthcare.
Physicians like it and it works.”

After evaluating six other EHR vendors, Allscripts scored the
highest in Woodland Healthcare’s evaluation process, which included
site visits, interviews and hands-on evaluation. Woodland will be
rolling out the entire TouchWorks EHR, allowing physicians to automate
all of their clinical processes and tasks.

“Woodland Healthcare offers a comprehensive range of healthcare
services, and their physicians were in need of a solution that reduced
paper and worked seamlessly across seven locations,” said Glen
Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “TouchWorks will allow
instant access to patient data and will be available to the doctors
who work in Woodland’s clinics, hospital and surgery center.”

Woodland Healthcare will integrate TouchWorks with its existing
Groupcast(TM) practice management solution from IDX Systems
Corporation. The integration of TouchWorks and Groupcast will directly
link clinical data and drive operational improvements, and is backed
by a 10-year strategic relationship between IDX and Allscripts.

Allscripts has established itself as a leading EHR provider in the
State of California, working with many of the largest and leading
groups in the state.
