New York-based orthopedic and pain-management practices to deploy Allscripts for EHRs and practice management

May 5, 2010

CHICAGO, IL and SYRACUSE, NY – May 4, 2010 – Allscripts today announced that Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists (SOS) and the New York Spine and Wellness Center (NYS&WC) have jointly selected the Allscripts Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management solution to enhance the quality of patient care, improve physician and patient communications, and better manage the cost of care delivery for their providers in 11 locations across the Syracuse area. 

The physician groups, which share many patients and coordinate patient care, will take advantage of government subsidies for Electronic Health Records under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).

Both groups will use the Allscripts Electronic Health Record solution to automate many daily clinical tasks, such as prescribing medications and documenting clinical encounters, while connecting providers to each other and to key healthcare stakeholders including labs, pharmacies and insurers. The Allscripts solution provides extensive orthopedic-specific clinical content, enabling orthopedic and pain-management practices to adapt existing documentation templates for common problems and injuries. It also captures clinical images directly into the patient’s chart, and interfaces with picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) – capabilities that are critical in providing orthopedic care.

The Allscripts Practice Management solution is fully integrated with the Allscripts Electronic Health Record and features scheduling and revenue-cycle solutions to improve productivity and bottom-line performance. Both groups will use Allscripts Remote to provide their physicians with virtually anytime-anywhere access to the HER via iPhone, BlackBerry and Windows smart phones.
