Allscripts Healthcare Solutions has announced that ABQ Health Partners has selected its electronic health record and, in a contract valued in excess of $3 million, will automate and connect their 250 multi-specialty physicians and mid-level caregivers.
The electronic health record from Allscripts replaces costly, error-prone paper record keeping by automating everyday clinical tasks such as prescribing medications, ordering and viewing laboratory tests, and documenting patient care. The solution will connect ABQ Health Partner’s physicians and other caregivers to laboratories, pharmacies, insurers and other key healthcare stakeholders, while delivering secure, immediate access to patient information at the point of care. Allscripts also will integrate with ABQ Health Partner’s existing IDX/GE practice management system, connecting the clinical and financial functions for enhanced productivity and patient service.
Harry Magnes, president and CEO of ABQ Health Partners, said: Allscripts delivers all the advantages of an interactive, state-of-the-art electronic health record to connect our providers to each other and to the information they need to make sound decisions. Now we’ll be able to deliver the modern benefits that patients are coming to expect of their physicians, including receiving automatic reminders when preventive tests are due or when lab results are abnormal, providing coordinated disease management across our patient population and identifying clinical trials that might help patients receive improved care.
