Date:8/30/2011

MOBILE, Ala., Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Springhill Medical Center, a 252-bed acute care hospital in Mobile, Ala., announced today that it is among the first Gulf Coast hospitals to be notified it will receive funding from Medicare for successfully demonstrating "meaningful use" of its Electronic Health Record (EHR). The technology automates many clinical tasks and connects providers to each other and to the latest patient information, supporting safer, higher quality and more coordinated care.

Springhill is the first Mobile-area hospital to receive an EHR incentive payment under the federal HITECH Act, which is designed to reward hospitals and physicians who successfully demonstrate Meaningful Use of an EHR.  Springhill achieved the first stage of the HITECH requirements through use of its Sunrise Enterprise™ EHR from Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX). The hospital will receive approximately $2 million in Stage 1 incentives and estimates that it could be eligible for approximately $2 million to $2.5 million more by achieving all three stages of Meaningful Use between now and 2015.

"We pride ourselves on offering the most technologically advanced tools for our physicians and nurses and have been cited for being on the cutting edge over and over through the years," said Jeffery St. Clair, Springhill Medical Center President and CEO. "Just as important to us is having a competent, caring team of healthcare professionals to utilize these advanced tools to provide the best patient care anywhere. This is the mission adopted by everyone who works here, and it has enabled us to remain successful in a challenging time for healthcare."

Mark Kilborn, Springhill Medical Center Chief Information Officer, commented, "The return on Springhill Medical Center's investment in its state-of-the-art Allscripts electronic health record system is easily measured. Through the use of real time data, evidence based guidelines, automated error alerting mechanism
