CHICAGO and METAIRIE, La., June 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allscripts, the leading provider of clinical software and information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, announced today that East Jefferson General Hospital (EJGH) has selected the Allscripts Electronic Health Record (EHR) for 138 of its employed and affiliated physicians, in the first phase of an anticipated deployment to all of the hospital's affiliated physicians.
