Allscripts Applauds Economic Stimulus Incentives Rewarding Physicians for Using Electronic Health Records
Date:2/17/2009

up to 90 percent of US physicians to adopt Electronic Health Records in the next decade.

A recent Allscripts survey of 1,888 healthcare professionals revealed that 98 percent of physician practices would take advantage of the incentives or would be closely evaluating the opportunity.

"Enabling a majority of physicians to use electronic health records is the single most important thing we can do to improve the quality and lower the cost of healthcare in America," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "We applaud President Obama and our Congressional leaders for recognizing the importance of this life-saving technology to our nation's future."

James R. Morrow, MD, a physician at North Fulton Family Medicine in Alpharetta, GA who was named Physician IT Leader of the Year by the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), welcomed news of the new law's passage. "In one stroke, Congress has all but removed the biggest stumbling block to EHR adoption -- cost," Dr. Morrow said. "It's time for doctors to stop complaining about the cost of an EHR and take the ball and run with it toward the goal of better medicine with better records and information sharing across the healthcare team."

Dr. Morrow's 11-physician practice received the coveted Nicholas E. Davies Award for Excellence from HIMSS in 2004 for demonstrating that their Allscripts Electronic Health Record saved $1.25 million a year by eliminating transcription and other costs associated with paper medical records. But Dr. Morrow insists the "most important reason to adopt the technology is the quality of care you can deliver for your patients".

Don Caruso, M.D., Associate Medical Director of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic in New Bedford, NH also applauded the passage of the stimulus legislation for its potential to encourage wider physician adoption of Electronic Health Records.
