Allscripts Announces Strategic Acquisitions Of DbMotion And Jardogs

Stocks in this article: MDRX

CHICAGO and NEW ORLEANS, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Allscripts acquired dbMotion, Ltd., a leading supplier of community health solutions and Jardogs LLC, the top-rated patient engagement solution provider, both privately held. 

Combined with the existing Allscripts Community solution, these new capabilities deliver comprehensive care coordination and population health management across acute, ambulatory, and home care systems.     

These acquisitions advance Allscripts' strategy to offer full integration of heterogeneous systems across the care continuum, enabling solutions for a Connected Community of Health™.  Leading healthcare organizations, such as Sharp Healthcare, Orlando Health, and Phoenix Children's Hospital have embraced these solutions to gain actionable insights from data to improve their medical decision-making and overall population outcomes.

dbMotion provides a strategic platform for care coordination and population health management that integrates discrete patient data from diverse care settings, regardless of IT supplier, into a single patient record. It provides a longitudinal clinical data repository with semantically normalized patient data, point of care tools, a physician portal, population tools and an analytics gateway. This reduces the cost of care delivery and enables better physician-to-physician care coordination. 

The Jardogs FollowMyHealth™ patient engagement platform enables patients to actively participate in their care, critical for at-risk populations, and empowers consumers with the solution they need to monitor and optimize health status.  It also provides seamless workflow integration between patients, physicians and other caregivers, including secure health messaging, prescription re-ordering, bill paying and scheduling of appointments.

"Healthcare physicians and other caregivers need improved care coordination, and these platform technologies put us in a leadership position to deliver on our vision for population health management through our Connected Community of Health™," said Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts.  "Inclusive of these acquisitions and our research and development plan, we will invest approximately $500 million in 2013 to develop the solutions our clients and the market need to deliver individualized quality care across communities.

"By solidifying our open connectivity strategy and strengthening our patient engagement offerings, we will accelerate information sharing and population health management, enabling better care," Black continued.  "dbMotion serves as the digital key to unlock the open exchange of critical patient information across disparate systems."
