CHICAGO, June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allscripts, the leading provider of clinical software and information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, announced today that it will offer qualified medical staff members of Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach, Calif. preferred pricing on the company's Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) solutions.

Hoag Hospital, in its commitment to enable excellent quality care and services, is leveraging the recent Stark and Anti-kickback reforms to assist Orange County physicians in the adoption of Electronic Health Records in their private practices. Hoag believes it is important to promote open, interconnected, interoperable Electronic Health Record applications that help improve the quality of patient care and efficiency in the delivery of health care to patients. To facilitate this, Hoag has signed an agreement with Allscripts to subsidize its EHR-PM solutions for independent members of its medical staff, a major step in the hospital's community-wide initiative to electronically link hospital services, physicians and other healthcare providers to offer truly integrated patient care.

"The leading hospitals across the country are increasingly coming to the conclusion that connectivity with the physicians who practice in their communities and refer the bulk of their patients is critical to delivering higher quality patient care and also to a strong business model," said Allscripts Chief Executive Officer Glen Tullman. "The cornerstone of the community model is immediate access to patient information, anytime and anywhere, and we are proud that Hoag Hospital, a national leader in quality patient care, has selected Allscripts to help deliver on that vision."

Allscripts Electronic Health Record and Practice Management for small and medium-sized physician practices are easy-to-deploy, physician-centric solutions that improve the delivery of safe, cost-effective, high-quality care by automating common tasks such as prescribing and refilling medications, ordering and viewing tests, and documenting care. Allscripts combines the power of an integrated Electronic Health Record and Practice Management solution to provide one full-circle, seamless patient information management source. Built on a single intelligent platform, the Allscripts solution will link business and clinical operations of each practice, and provide caregivers instant and secure access to the complete patient record.

Hoag staff physicians who select Allscripts will access the Electronic Health Record and Practice Management solutions over the Internet via Application Service Provider (ASP) hosting and support. The ASP model provides a simple, affordable means of delivering vital patient information to caregivers without the upfront costs of purchasing new equipment to host the solution themselves. Because the ASP model also speeds deployment, it is becoming an increasingly important option for mid-size and independent practices.

Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian is a 498-bed, not-for-profit, acute care hospital with more than 1,000 physicians on staff. Fully accredited by The Joint Commission and designated as a Magnet hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), Hoag offers a comprehensive mix of health care services, including Centers of Excellence in cancer, heart and vascular, orthopedics and women's health services. A National Research Corporation Consumer Choice Award endorses Hoag as Orange County's most preferred hospital based on overall quality of health care services and places Hoag in the top five percent of hospitals nationwide.
