Black Book Market Research Names Allscripts Top Inpatient Electronic Health Record Vendor

A comprehensive study conducted by research company Black Book Rankings has named Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Sunrise electronic health record (EHR) platform as the top overall inpatient EHR for large hospitals and academic medical centers. The survey, which took place from September 2013 to January 2014, investigated more than 600 EMR vendors, and included 168 provider participants from facilities with more than 300 beds.
