Posted on: Monday, July 13, 2020 By: KorchekStaff
Allscripts on July 13 announced a five-year extension of its alliance with Microsoft, designating the tech giant as its new cloud provider.
Four things to know:
1. Allscripts will move its Sunrise EHR platform to Microsoft Azure, which will make implementations faster and annual upgrade costs lower for EHR clients.
2. Allscripts' Sunrise EHR is an integrated platform that connects all aspects of care, including acute, ambulatory, surgical and pharmacy as well as its revenue cycle and patient administration system.
3. The cloud-based platform will increase security and analytics capabilities for Sunrise clients, and users will also have access to Microsoft Teams and Power BI.
4. Allscripts clients will begin to see the updates by the end of the year.
"The COVID-19 pandemic will forever change how healthcare is delivered, and provider organizations around the world must ensure they are powered by innovative, interoperable, comprehensive and lower-cost IT solutions that meet the demands of our new normal," Allscripts CEO Paul Black said in news release emailed to Becker's Hospital Review.
