Allscripts announced today that Lake Region Healthcare has selected the Allscripts Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) solution to enhance the quality of patient care, improve patient communications, and better manage the cost of care delivery for 50 affiliated physicians and mid-level providers employed by Fergus Falls Medical Group.
