akeholders. The information sharing that Allscripts can deliver creates a safer, higher quality environment for patient care."

The integrated Allscripts solutions also will help Coordinated Health ensure a smooth transition for patients as they move between care settings. The group currently operates a Surgical Specialty Hospital in Bethlehem that combines outpatient facilities with 20 inpatient rooms for patients who require extensive surgery. A second Surgical Specialty Hospital with 22 inpatient rooms will be opening in Allentown in July 2009. Coordinated Health also operates physician offices specializing in arthritis and osteoporosis care, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, spine care, and joint care, as well as rehabilitation and imaging centers.

"Coordinated Health has again demonstrated their leadership among the Greater Lehigh Valley medical groups by responding quickly to President Obama's call for the adoption of electronic health records to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of patient care in the United States," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "Like a number of other leading Pennsylvania physician groups, they chose Allscripts based on our strong focus on providing physicians with innovative solutions that are extremely powerful yet easy to use."

John Fistner, Chief Financial Officer of Coordinated Health, commented, "In addition to taking advantage of the federal incentives, we felt we could create significant practice efficiencies and position ourselves as a provider of management services for smaller practices in the region by hosting Allscripts for them. Being on the same system with those practices would also help us improve the coordination of care between referring physicians and our specialists, which in turn will improve the quality of care for our patients."
