Northwell Health, a New York-based health system, and Allscripts announced an innovative agreement to create the next-generation electronic health record (EHR). The cloud-based, voice-enabled, artificial intelligence-based EHR will be designed and tested using input from Northwell clinicians, information technology experts, and administrators with the goal of ultimately deploying it systemwide.
Chicago, Illinois-based Allscripts, which specializes in connecting consumers with health care provider organizations and payment solutions, will provide the development and systems integration expertise to build the new and improved EHR. The product will optimize the user experience and enhance the delivery of care to improve the experience for both clinicians and consumers alike.
Allscripts and Northwell will jointly develop and pilot the new EHR while continuing to support and enhance Allscripts Sunrise™, the EHR platform currently in use at the 19 Northwell hospitals and Allscripts Touchworks™, currently in use at more than 750 outpatient practices that Northwell owns and operates throughout the New York area. Northwell has been using Allscripts’ EHR since 2009 to advance the automation of inpatient and outpatient records in all medical settings across the health system.
Northwell Health is New York State’s largest health care provider organization and private employer, with 23 hospitals, about 750 outpatient facilities, and more than 13,600 affiliated physicians. Northwell Health cares for over two million people annually in the New York metro area and beyond, thanks to philanthropic support from the surrounding communities. The 70,000 employees are working to change health care for the better. Northwell is making breakthroughs in medicine at the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research. The health system is training the next generation of medical professionals at the visionary Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell and the Hofstra Northwell School of Graduate Nursing and Physician Assistant Studies.
Allscripts is a leader in health care information technology solutions that advance clinical, financial, and operational results. The innovative solutions connect people, places, and data across an Open, Connected Community of Health™. Connectivity empowers caregivers to make better decisions and deliver better care for healthier populations.
