Allscripts announced today that Soundview Medical Associates has selected Allscripts Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) to enhance the quality of the care delivered by its 22 physicians, improve patient communications, and better manage the cost of care delivery.
Soundview has used the Misys Tiger® practice management solution since 1998 and wanted an Electronic Health Record that would integrate seamlessly with the administrative billing and scheduling system. Allscripts merged with Misys Healthcare in October 2008.
“When Allscripts and Misys joined forces, we immediately took a long look at the Allscripts electronic health record, not only because we have a lot invested in our practice management system but because no other EHR could integrate with that system and its years of accumulated patient information as seamlessly as Allscripts,” said Eileen Smith, Executive Director of Soundview Medical Associates. “Once our physicians decided they wanted the Allscripts EHR, we realized it made sense to upgrade to their latest practice management solution as well. We’re confident that the integrated solution will improve our ability to offer safe, quality health care for our patients and do so in the most efficient and cost effective manner.” [Read more…]
