CHICAGO and STUART, Fla., June 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allscripts, the leading provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, today announced that Martin Memorial Health Systems (MMHS) has selected the Allscripts Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) solution to automate clinical and financial operations for its employed physician group.

Martin Memorial is a not-for-profit, community-based healthcare organization comprised of two hospitals with 344 total beds, three MediCenters and numerous clinics staffed by nearly 400 affiliated physicians along Florida's Treasure Coast region. Allscripts will be deployed for the 80 providers of Martin Memorial Medical Group, the system's employed physician group, with 23 practices in Hobe Sound, Palm City, Stuart, Jensen Beach and Port St. Lucie.

"We are always looking for innovative, new ways to provide outstanding care for our patients," said Richmond Harman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Martin Memorial. The electronic health record will help our physicians and clinical staff provide that care by giving them patient information in real time, while eliminating the potential for communication errors."

MMHS's selection of Allscripts followed an exhaustive evaluation of Electronic Health Record and Practice Management vendors. Martin Memorial already utilizes the Allscripts Care Management solution in its hospitals to automate and streamline the process of safely discharging patients and connecting with post-acute and home-care providers -- cutting length of stay while increasing throughput, reimbursement and staff efficiency.

"Martin Memorial Health Systems is leading the trend of hospitals supplying their physicians with real-time information and connectivity to deliver a seamless, high quality patient experience," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "We are especially proud that Martin Memorial is taking advantage of our ability to connect the entire community of care, including discharge management -- the important 'door out' of the hospital -- and the extended care providers to whom they refer patients."

The Allscripts Electronic Health Record automates everyday clinical tasks such as prescribing and refilling medications, ordering and reviewing tests, and documenting patient care. The web-based solution delivers instant access to patient information anywhere at anytime, whether providers are in the clinic, at the hospital or on-call at home. The solution also provides Martin Memorial physicians with robust tools for documentation and orders, preloaded connections to a wide range of medical devices, and seamless support for pay-for-performance and quality initiatives.

Allscripts Practice Management combines sophisticated scheduling and Revenue Cycle Management tools to help physician practices become more productive while improving service to patients. Important features include advanced billing and reconciliation, referral and eligibility indicators, and automated patient appointment reminders.
