Allscripts Leadership in Interoperability Showcased at HIMSS; Grant Awarded to Allscripts Client to Test Laboratory Interoperability and Connectivity Standards.

SAN DIEGO -- From the floor of the 2006 HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) Annual Conference and Exhibition, Allscripts (Nasdaq:MDRX), the leading provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, today announced that the TouchWorks(TM) Electronic Health Record will be featured at the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase.

Allscripts will demonstrate interoperability with other healthcare information technology applications in a setting that will be structured as a Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO). Attendees at HIMSS will experience interoperability as they create and manage their own virtual health record and access it across multiple healthcare settings within the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase. Additionally, thirteen of the vendors will demonstrate how they access, create and share patient records in real-time, across the floor of the exhibit hall including Allscripts, Eclipsys, GE, McKesson, Misys, Phillips and Siemens.

"Interoperability is critical to connecting patients, providers and other key stakeholders to deliver on the promise of a seamless healthcare delivery system," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "The Showcase enables Allscripts to demonstrate how our solution works in real-world and real-time patient care scenarios, providing instant access to a complete clinical record, incorporating clinical information from all providers across the continuum of care."

This is the second consecutive year Allscripts has participated in the Interoperability Showcase at HIMSS. The 2006 Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) profiles build upon the success of the preliminary integration work that was demonstrated in past years, as well as provides new content in the form of Medical Summary documents. Medical Summaries capture the context of a healthcare encounter and include information on allergies, medications and problems.

Allscripts will demonstrate how a physician can generate notes and send referrals to an outside specialist, as well as show a number of different scenarios where clinical information is moved between the public and private sector.

The grant is part of the EHR Lab Interoperability and Connectivity Standards (ELINICS) project, which is a collaborative effort between CHCF and leading health organizations. Brown & Toland was selected through a competitive request-for-proposals process in California.
