ProHealth Physicians Selects Allscripts Electronic Health Record and Practice Management for 240 Providers

CHICAGO and HARTFORD, Conn., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allscripts, the leading provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, announced today that ProHealth Physicians, the largest primary care medical group in Connecticut, has selected the Allscripts Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) solution to automate and connect their clinical and administrative processes.


ProHealth will implement the integrated Allscripts solution for their 180 physicians and 60 mid-level providers in more than 80 locations across Hartford, New Haven, Middlesex, Tolland and Litchfield counties.

"By taking the paper out of medicine, Allscripts will enable us to improve processes in all of our offices for greater efficiency and enhanced care," said Jack Reed, President and Chief Executive Officer of Prohealth Physicians.

The Allscripts Electronic Health Record enables physicians to instantly access patient information when and where they need it -- in their practice, at the hospital or while on-call at home. The web-based solution speeds and automates everyday clinical tasks such as prescribing and refilling medications, ordering and viewing tests, and documenting care. The Allscripts Practice Management solution combines sophisticated scheduling and revenue cycle management tools in a single package and incorporates advanced features such as rule-based appointment scheduling, multi-resource and recurring appointment features, referral and eligibility indicators, and appointment and claims management.

ProHealth selected Allscripts after a year-long search that included visiting several large physician practices who utilize Allscripts Electronic Health Record and Practice Management.

"We were impressed to discover that physician groups across the country have been energized by Allscripts vision of transforming healthcare through information technology, and by the Allscripts commitment to developing a real-world platform for community-based health information exchange," said Bruce Campbell, Ph.D., M.D., Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer of ProHealth Physicians. "We believe the integrated electronic health record and practice management system will enable us to continue to grow and create value for our patients, our physician owners, other community providers, and payors active in the communities that we serve."

Allscripts Chief Executive Officer Glen Tullman commented, "ProHealth has set itself apart as a true leader in Connecticut with a focus on quality patient care today and what will be required to deliver even better coordinated care tomorrow. We are already working with ProHealth and insurers to determine how we can better connect, coordinate care, and deliver preventative information to patients when and where it matters most, at the point of care. We're very much looking forward to working with them."
