CHICAGO, Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) has entered into an agreement with the newly-established Montefiore New Rochelle and Montefiore Mount Vernon to expand the relationship at those locations, which were recently acquired by Montefiore Health System. This partnership will upgrade both hospitals to Allscripts Sunrise™ 6.1 Integrated Electronic Health Record as well as the Sunrise Clinical Analytics™, Sunrise Radiology™ and Sunrise Laboratory™. It also allows for the implementation of the Allscripts FollowMyHealth™ patient engagement solution.
“Allscripts Sunrise has played an important role in the care of patients at both of these hospitals and we look forward to the ongoing use of this electronic health record system,” said Jack Wolf, Montefiore’s Chief Information Officer. “We are also encouraged by the patient engagement solutions offered by Allscripts, which allow patients to better manage their own care by staying informed and connected.”
Allscripts Sunrise 6.1, a robust and advanced electronic health record (EHR) information solution with significant functional enhancements, is designed to help clinicians meet Meaningful Use Stage 1 and 2 requirements and manage the complexity of ICD-10.
