Allscripts Ranked No. 1 in Electronic Prescription Routing for Second Consecutive Year
Date:4/30/2009

full Electronic Health Record, electronic prescribing improves patient safety and quality of care by automating the prescription process. The technology is far safer than the current system of prescribing on paper. The Institute of Medicine issued two studies concluding that universal electronic prescribing would help prevent the 1.5 million injuries and 7,000 deaths that arise each year from needless medication errors.

"Electronic prescribing saves lives by providing the information critical to delivering high quality, safe and cost-effective care," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "We see standalone e-prescribing as an 'on-ramp' to the full Electronic Health Record, helping thousands of physicians to more easily adopt clinical technology as a first step toward using an EHR and qualifying for new federal incentives under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act."

The Act, signed by President Obama in February, empowers the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to pay physicians between $44,000 and $64,000 over five years, beginning in Fiscal Year 2011, for deploying and demonstrating "meaningful use" of a certified Electronic Health Record to care for patients. Physicians who do not use an Electronic Health Record after 2014 will be penalized by CMS.

e-Prescribing Gains Traction With Medicare Incentives

Allscripts has witnessed a dramatic increase in the volume of prescriptions transmitted through its electronic prescribing solutions since CMS began on January 1 to pay a 2 percent annual bonus on Medicare billings to physicians who route prescriptions electronically.

At the current rate of transmission, Allscripts is on track to deliver nearly 60 million electronic prescriptions in 2009, more than doubling its 2008 volume.

As of April 28, Allscripts had recorded a nearly 400 percent year-over-year increa
