Cardinal Health to Offer Allscripts Electronic Health Record to Solo and Small Physician Groups

CHICAGO, May 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allscripts today announced that Cardinal Health (NYSE: CAH), one of the largest health care distributors in the country, will offer the Allscripts MyWay(TM) Electronic Health Record to its physician customers across the nation.


Surveys indicate 95 percent of physicians in small practices currently do not have an Electronic Health Record (EHR) and would need to adopt one to qualify for a maximum of between $44,000 and $64,000 per physician in new federal incentives. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provides for the incentives over five years, beginning in fiscal 2011, for physicians who demonstrate meaningful use of a certified EHR system. Additionally, physicians who have not adopted a certified Electronic Health Record by 2015 will have their Medicare reimbursements reduced by 1 to 3 percent each year.

The addition of the Allscripts MyWay EHR to Cardinal Health's extensive portfolio of products and services enables the company to serve as a one-stop provider for physician practice's needs.

"Cardinal Health is committed to helping physicians improve the efficiency of their practices and the quality of the care they provide," said Kenny Wilson, senior vice president and general manager of Cardinal Health's Ambulatory Care business. "Our partnership with Allscripts is a great example of how Cardinal Health helps physician practices improve through the use of innovative technologies."

The Allscripts MyWay EHR is available as both a SaaS (Software as a Service) and on-premise solution, and offers robust capabilities for electronic health, practice management and claims management. The solution is designed to help small physician practices overcome cost and IT complexity barriers.

"Our partnership with Cardinal Health provides a trusted channel to help physician offices enter the electronic healthcare highway cost-effectively and with minimal IT headaches," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "As physicians move to take advantage of the stimulus incentives, our focus is on successful adoption and use of electronic health records, not simply acquisition."
