CHICAGO, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Sunrise hospital clients continue to expand their Allscripts Sunrise EHR footprint, building on the power of the Allscripts platform and demonstrating how enhanced, integrated Allscripts Sunrise solutions are helping clients steward the value-based care transformation.
Allscripts clients are expanding or upgrading with Allscripts Sunrise solutions such as Allscripts Sunrise Ambulatory Care™, Allscripts Sunrise Emergency Care™ and Allscripts Sunrise Surgical Care™. There have been 23 new Allscripts Sunrise commitments at client facilities or at new client organizations internationally and in the United States since January 2013, as hospitals continue to recognize the breadth, depth and power of the Sunrise platform.
Allscripts Sunrise is built on the modern technology of a Microsoft SQL platform and can provide lower total cost of ownership while delivering top-tier functionality. By design, Allscripts Sunrise is a platform optimized for decision support first, empowering the client to create the increasingly complex protocols and workflows to support improved patient and financial outcomes and deploy them across all care settings.
A recent upgrade to the Allscripts Sunrise Surgical Care enterprise-wide solution provides a continuous, patient-level record specialized to meet the distinct IT needs of surgery and perioperative care, including pre-operative, orders, and documentation.
