Web-hosted EHR

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Direct from the HIMSS 2008 Conference and Exhibition, Allscripts, the leading provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians use to improve health care, today announced that CIGNA Medical Group (CMG) has selected Allscripts as their Electronic Health Record (EHR) provider for their primary care and specialty physicians. An EHR is a highly secure web-based software application that allows clinicians to record each and every aspect of a patient's health record in real time in an electronic format. A division of CIGNA HealthCare of Arizona, Inc., CMG is one of the largest multi-specialty group practices in metropolitan Phoenix with more than 170 clinicians in 21 offices.

The Electronic Health Record from Allscripts replaces paper recordkeeping by allowing clinicians to complete everyday clinical tasks such as prescribing medications, ordering and viewing laboratory tests, and documenting patient care in real time in an electronic format.

"Our EHR choice is designed to help improve quality by facilitating our physicians' practice of following evidence-based medical practices, using electronic, rather than paper, records," said Bob Carroll, vice president of operations for CIGNA HealthCare of Arizona.

Allscripts will connect CMG physicians and other caregivers to laboratories, pharmacies, insurers and other key healthcare stakeholders, while delivering secure, immediate access to patient information at the point of care -- whether in the office, at the hospital or remotely. Important features of the Electronic Health Record include robust tools for documentation and orders, seamless support for pay-for-performance initiatives, and plug-and-play connectivity to more than 100 medical devices through the Universal Application Integrator(TM). Allscripts also provides 1,200 ready-to-use CareGuide templates with best practice guidelines, and automated health management plans customized for each patient.

"We are extremely proud that one of the nation's largest health care organizations has selected our electronic health record to transform care within its Arizona physician group," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "By implementing Allscripts, CIGNA Medical Group is providing its physicians with the information they need, when and where they need it, to deliver improved care at lower cost."
