Allscripts (Chicago) and American Well (Boston, Mass.), a telehealth provider, are collaborating on a will integrate the latter’s EHR platform with the former’s telehealth solution.  Allscripts, the EHR software provider, says this collaboration is another step in its “Connected Community of Health,” vision, and will give patients access to care remotely with their patient data cued up through the EHR.

“Allscripts telehealth solution will help provide convenient, safer and secure access to care and enable that care to be documented in the electronic health record—so that other providers can have up-to-date information. It will also give physicians an opportunity to get paid for telehealth, something that was a hurdle in the past,” Glen Tullman, CEO of Allscripts, said in a statement. “Our open platform architecture enables this integration, which we expect to be available in January, and takes us another step closer to a ‘Connected Community of Health.’”

The University of South Florida (USF) Health, which encompasses USF's colleges of medicine, nursing, public health and pharmacy as well as USF Physician Group, will be one of the first providers to use this collaboration, in partnership with The Villages, the country's largest over-55 residential community, located near Tampa.
