About Allscripts Developer Program (ADP) The Allscripts Developer Program enables outside developers to build innovations for clients and get them tested and approved to run on Allscripts Electronic Health Records. For example, MyCareTeam created an app where providers can access reports on their diabetic patients from the Allscripts Electronic Health Record, which include blood glucose readings as well as progress on diet and exercise, so caregivers can easily monitor a patient's progress against the treatment plan, and patients feel more engaged in their own health.
