CHICAGO and ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allscripts (Nasdaq: MDRX), the leading provider of clinical software and information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, announced today that Sandia National Laboratories has selected the company's integrated Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) solution to automate and connect clinical and administrative processes for Sandia's on-site medical clinics.

Sandia is a multi-program lab, primarily doing national defense R&D, energy, and environment projects. One of the foremost technical institutions in the world, Sandia is dedicated to developing science-based technologies that support U.S. national security. Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin company, manages Sandia National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration.

Sandia's selection of the combined Allscripts Electronic Health Record and Practice Management solution for integrated clinical and back-office automation reflects a growing national trend. According to Hewitt and Associates, a major human resources services firm, US employers spend between $6,000 and $8,000 per worker for health insurance. In an effort to control costs, large employers such as Sandia are choosing to provide their own healthcare in on-site clinics -- and many are embracing healthcare information technology to increase the efficiency of their physicians and support staff.

"Allscripts will help Sandia continue to provide our thousands of employees with the highest standard of medical care available, in our on-site clinics," said Linda Duffy, M.D., Director of Medical Administration for Sandia. "At Sandia, we pride ourselves on providing preventive health and disease management services in a convenient location to help keep our employees healthy, happy and productive. Allscripts will automate and connect our healthcare team, while making our back office more efficient and cost-effective."

Sandia's employed physicians and mid-level providers offer a full spectrum of medical services including urgent care, emergency medical services, consultations, physical therapy, allergy shots and blood pressure monitoring for the lab's 8,500 employees in Albuquerque, NM and Livermore, Calif. Sandia's on-site clinics also provide preventative health services, such as health risk assessments, screenings and health education, as well as a Disease Management Clinic for the management of prevalent diseases including diabetes, hyperlipidemia, high blood pressure and their serious complications.

After a comprehensive search, Sandia selected Allscripts based on its technology, its financial stability, and its experience with the nation's leading medical groups, where tens of thousands of physicians use Allscripts technology every day to provide high quality patient care.

"On-site clinics are becoming increasingly common for forward-looking employers like Sandia who want to control their healthcare costs while offering preventive health and wellness services," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "Our solution helps employer-owned clinics deliver that vision of improved care for their employees more cost-effectively."

The Electronic Health Record functionality of the integrated Allscripts solution brings Sandia's physicians instant access to patient information, both at the point of care or remotely. Allscripts automates everyday clinical tasks such as prescribing and refilling medications, ordering and reviewing tests, and documenting patient care. An easy-to-use and customizable solution, the Electronic Health Records features robust clinical tools that support safe medical practices, including health maintenance alerts, clinical decision support, and automated drug safety checking.

The Practice Management functionality of Allscripts combines sophisticated scheduling and financial management tools into a single package. Important features of the solution include rules-based appointment scheduling, multi-resource and recurring appointment features, referral and eligibility indicators, and appointment and claims management.
