s, and structured electronic data sets, Springhill has seen significant improvements in the quality of care, patient safety and most importantly, outcomes. Springhill's commitment to provide these invaluable tools to its many multi-disciplinary caregivers ensures the very best in the clinical decision making process of patient care. Combined with its compassionate, well trained professional staff, Springhill is clearly at the head of the pack here in Mobile and the greater Gulf Coast region."

Springhill surpassed every one of the extensive set of criteria that eligible hospitals and physicians must achieve in order to receive the stage 1 funding. The criteria are designed not only to improve quality, safety, and efficiency but to reduce disparities in healthcare; engage patients in their own care; improve care coordination when patients move from one setting to another; improve population and public health; and ensure privacy and security protections for personal health information.

"Springhill Medical Center has a distinguished track record of using Allscripts technology to drive quality improvements like reductions in wound infections and shorter post-operative stays," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "We're proud to support leading healthcare organizations like Springhill with rapid implementation and the tools they need to attest to meaningful use and continue to improve care for their patients."
