man, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts, said, "With this grant, Vermont leaders including Sen. Leahy and VITL have again demonstrated their ability to develop a sustainable blueprint for healthcare IT adoption and to back up the vision with meaningful incentives. We are proud to have been selected by VITL to help Vermont's physicians take the first step on the electronic healthcare highway with electronic prescribing - a technology that enhances the quality and lowers the cost of healthcare for everyone."

Chicago-based Allscripts (Nasdaq: MDRX), the nation's No. 1 e-prescribing and Electronic Health Record provider for physician practices of all sizes, employs 170 people in its Burlington office. The company is hiring aggressively in Vermont to fulfill the demand for e-prescribing and Electronic Health Records (EHR) in the wake of the federal incentive program.

A portion of the HRSA grant will be used by VITL to help Vermont hospitals license technology to accept lab orders electronically from physicians. "VITL has been connecting Vermont's hospitals to the Vermont Health Information Exchange, so that lab test results and other data can be sent electronically to physicians. The HRSA grant will expand the services that VITL provides, making it easier for physicians to use their electronic medical records systems," Dr. Cochran said.

Vermont prescribers can learn more about VITL's electronic prescribing technology by visiting www.eprescribevt.org.
