Based on its recent analysis of the electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Allscripts with the 2014 Australia-New Zealand Excellence in Growth Strategy Award. This award further reflects industry recognition of Allscripts' commitment to open architecture, outcomes, and a client-focused strategy.
"The technologies of EMR and EHR in ANZ are at an inflection point, as practitioners begin to focus on collaboration and integration across departments, stakeholders and devices," said Frost & Sullivan Connected Health Senior Industry Analyst Natasha Gulati. "Allscripts has invested in business processes, products, and companies that have the potential to create a unique connected health platform that integrates a variety of industry participants."
In 2013, Allscripts continued to leverage its open architecture and a leading position in population health management to deliver on client commitments. Allscripts' focus on driving client success through positive patient outcomes helped facilitate its growth in 2013 and underscored the traction of its strategic efforts. Allscripts currently works with approximately 180,000 physicians across 45,000 practices and 2,700 hospitals worldwide.
Acknowledging the need to integrate healthcare records, Allscripts made strategic acquisitions and research and development investments in enabling solutions that aid the integration of heterogeneous systems across diverse care settings. Its main products - the Allscripts Sunrise™ Clinicals solutions suite, the Allscripts dbMotion™ population health management solution and the Allscripts FollowMyHealth™ patient engagement solution - serve both acute and ambulatory customer segments allowing for information exchange and interoperability across care settings.
"As providers move towards integrated care across the entire community, including the home, they need solutions that are open and integrated," said Allscripts Managing Director of Sales for Australia, David Chambers. "As demonstrated by our clients' results, Allscripts provides needed solutions that enable providers and governments to manage the health of entire populations, which can result in better patient engagement, increased quality, and lower costs."
Furthering its commitment to interoperability, Allscripts launched the open application programming interface (API) initiative, which consists of the Allscripts Developer Program, software development kit (SDK) and application store and exchange. It allows clients and third-party development partners to connect data and build innovative solutions to ease providers' pain points around EHR adoption.
"Allscripts is dedicated to its core values and has gained the trust of healthcare providers across the region," noted Gulati. "The company's successful systems and superior quality service provision across ANZ have paved the way for strong growth, particularly through new implementations."
