Clinical software and service firm Allscripts has reported that University Physicians Associates, the medical faculty group for the University of Louisville School of Medicine, will implement the TouchWorks electronic health record to connect and provide clinical automation for more than 400 physicians and residents.
The Allscripts electronic health record (EHR) system will enable University Physicians Associates (UPA) physicians to have instant access to clinical records from any of the group’s more than 40 practice locations, at the hospital or remotely, and provide a seamless connection to the other administrative and clinical systems in use by UPA.
Our partnership with Allscripts improves our ability to create a premier, patient-focused, integrated physician practice, said Belinda Love, executive director of the University of Louisville Medical School Practice Association.
With the EHR, UPA physicians can automate many of their daily clinical tasks, such as prescribing medications, ordering lab tests, viewing test results, making referrals electronically and documenting clinical encounters.
TouchWorks measures key performance indicators and provides patient population
management, with alerts to indicate when key disease management indicators fall out of range, plus tools to review the details of clinical measures such as care planning statistics, health maintenance and provider productivity.
Allscripts, as a part of its strategic relationship with IDX (now a part of GE Healthcare), will provide standardized interoperability between TouchWorks EHR and the Centricity practice management system (formerly IDX Flowcast).
