Appalachian Regional Healthcare System Activates Allscripts Electronic Health Record

Stocks in this article: MDRX

CHICAGO, Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Appalachian Regional Healthcare System successfully implemented Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Sunrise Clinical Manager (SCM). The Electronic Health Record (EHR) system from Allscripts will support Appalachian's efforts to revolutionize the organization by providing single, integrated patient records with the same graphical interface across the health system. The addition of SCM will help Appalachian connect its community and deliver better coordinated care.

Sunrise Clinical Manager provides state-of-the-art Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) as well as an integrated pharmacy, a knowledge-based medication administration, and acute, critical care and emergency care solutions. One week into the successful implementation at the Boone and Linville campuses, more than 2100 orders were entered into the SCM system by more than 40 physicians.

"Implementing the Allscripts EHR system is one of the greatest clinical transformations our organization – and the nursing department specifically – has undergone," said Claire Cline, Senior Vice President, Patient Care Services/CNO of Appalachian Regional Healthcare System. "We now have electronic patient information at each of our acute care facilities, which can be shared between the patient's healthcare providers."

Appalachian is the healthcare leader in the High Country. The system is comprised of three hospitals: Blowing Rock Hospital in Blowing Rock, Charles A. Cannon, Jr. Memorial Hospital in Linville and Watauga Medical Center in Boone, a physician practice management group - Appalachian Regional Medical Associates (ARMA) and Appalachian Regional Healthcare Foundation.

"Allscripts owes its latest successful implementation to the team effort of Appalachian's physicians, nurses and information system department," said Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "Allscripts Electronic Health Record will help Appalachian better connect the dots between its facilities, improving care coordination across its facilities."

Appalachian uses Sunrise Acute Care, Sunrise Critical Care, Sunrise Emergency Care, Sunrise Pharmacy, Sunrise Knowledge-Based Medication Administration for Acute, Sunrise Mobile MD (on the iPhone and iPad), Sunrise Clinical Analytics and Clinician Portal.
