CHICAGO, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Resolute Health, a new health and wellness provider based in New Braunfels, Texas, selected Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Sunrise Clinical Manager™ Electronic Health Record (EHR) with the goal of improving its community's health by providing better, more efficient care. In addition to creating innovative health and wellness programs as part of its clinically-integrated delivery system, Resolute, a division of Vanguard Health Systems, is building a full-service, fully integrated hospital opening in spring, 2014. Resolute will also use Allscripts Community Record for information exchange and for its HIE and analytics.
Resolute Health's goal is to empower patients with tools that help them engage in the pursuit of health and wellbeing. The organization's approach promotes prevention first and foremost.
"We chose Allscripts because it gives us an open platform as well as a one database solution for physician practices and hospital needs," said Roderick Bell, chief information officer, Resolute Health. "Allscripts Sunrise Clinical Manager coupled with the use of Allscripts Community Record will make for a powerful, integrated population health management solution."
Resolute will strive to better manage population health for the community in all of its ambulatory settings, for instance in Resolute's Endocrinology and Diabetes Institute. Resolute is attacking the high incidence of diabetes in Comal County, Texas, which currently affects some 12 percent of the county's population. If left untreated, the rate is expected to jump to 25 percent by 2040. The institute provides a team approach to care and support for adults with diabetic, endocrine and metabolic issues. Utilizing Allscripts Community Record will enable Resolute to better manage this segment of the patient population in Comal and surrounding counties.
"We support Resolute Health's commitment to prevention and look forward to providing the organization with tools to help meet its population health goals," said Paul M. Black, president and chief executive officer, Allscripts. "The use of Allscripts will enable Resolute's providers to help keep the community healthy."
