- The past few years have seen many changes at Allscripts from changing leadership to a restructuring of its operations nationally. Most recently, Chicago-based EHR company Allscripts has revealed its plans to make precision medicine a key component of its EHR platform and invested heavily to that end.
Allscripts remains a well-known supplier of health IT and its EHR technology helps support some of the nation’s leading healthcare systems and hospitals in achieving high-levels of care coordination and delivery.
Here is a breakdown of the ten largest Allscripts EHR implementations by healthcare systems in the United States using data and intelligence from Definitive Healthcare.
Editor’s note: This is the second installment in a multi-part series on health system and hospital EHR implementations in the United States involving industry-leading EHR companies. Read about the biggest Cerner EHR Implementations, MediTech EHR Implementations and Epic EHR implementations.
Catholic Health Initiatives
Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) signed onto Allscripts for its ambulatory EHRs in 2010, and completed implementation four years later in 2014. The EHR implementation has helped connect the 102 CHI hospitals in 19 states, increasing the quality of care for the health system’s patients.
Through education and research, CHI seeks to further the healing ministry of the Church by emphasizing dignity and social justice while administering high quality care to all patients.
With over 700 locations, Northwell Health provides treatments for nearly 760 illnesses and provides 780 services to its patients. To connect this vast number of healthcare services, the health system, formerly known as North Shore LIJ, began implementing Allscripts in 2007.
Rolling out the implementation by department, Northwell had over 75 percent of its facilities using Allscripts by 2014. Northwell seeks to “be better tomorrow than we are today,” by providing quality and coordinated care to all of its patients in the Long Island and Queens region of New York.
Baylor Health Care System
Through 27 affiliated hospitals, Baylor Health Care System seeks to serve all of its patients through personalized and individual health care.
To help carry out that mission, the health system implemented Allscripts EHR in its inpatient facilities in 2013. Since then, Baylor Health has had its CIOs recognized as part of Becker Hospital Review’s “CIOs in the Know,” and has been named by the American Hospital Association as the Most Improved for health IT in 2014.
University Hospitals Health System
In 2011, University Hospitals Health System (UHHS) selected Allscripts for both its inpatient and ambulatory care settings. UHHS selected Allscripts to help supplement its care coordination and Accountable Care Organization initiatives. Since implementation, University Hospitals has been named as HIMSS Stage 6 for EHR use.
Operating on the tenets of excellence, diversity, integrity, compassion, and teamwork, UHHS operates several medical centers throughout the state of Ohio.
With six acute care hospitals and 2 hospital affiliates, Orlando Health treats over 100,000 patients annually.
The health system strives to extend its work beyond the hospital by emphasizing community outreach and development. In 2006, Orlando Health selected Allscripts as its EHR vendor for both inpatient and ambulatory facilities, helping to connect the health system’s physicians to one health record.
New York Presbyterian Hospital - Weill Cornell Medical Center
As the nation’s largest non-profit, non-sectarian hospital, Weill Cornell Medical Center has nearly 2 million inpatient and ambulatory patients annually.
In 2011, the hospital adopted Allscripts EHR systems, creating increased interoperability between itself and Columbia University Medical Center, another New York Presbyterian hospital. Since implementing Allscripts, Weill Cornell Medical Center has been named one of U.S. News & World Reports’ Best Hospitals in America in 2015.
Operating under the philosophy that they are treating people, not patients, Sharp Healthcare employs nearly 17,000 individuals as San Diego’s largest health care system.
In 2000, Sharp began its three-year EHR implementation timeline, taking on Allscripts as its ambulatory EHR vendor. Since implementation, Sharp has received several awards recognizing its exemplary care, including nearly six affiliates receiving HIMSS Stage 6.
Robert Wood Johnson Health System
In 2014, Robert Wood Johnson Health System extended its contract with Allscripts until 2020. With Allscripts EHR systems, Robert Wood Johnson Health System has received several HIMSS Stage 6 awards, demonstrating the health system’s ability to coordinate care to help increase patient care quality.
With a mission to foster an environment for excellence in all areas of care, the health system operates nearly 1,733 beds across the system, delivering high-quality care to all of its patients.
An affiliate of Washington University School of Medicine, Barnes-Jewish Hospital seeks to be national leaders in patient experience and healthcare delivery.
Operating on values of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect, and excellence, Barnes-Jewish has nearly 1,315 licensed beds and over 50,000 inpatient admissions annually. In 2006, as a part of Washington University School of Medicine, Barnes-Jewish adopted Allscripts EHR systems, helping them achieve accolades such as HIMSS Stage 6.
Mountain States Health Alliance
A Tennessee not-for-profit health system, Mountain States Health Alliance operates 13 hospitals within Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, and North Carolina. Mountain States seeks to heal not only illnesses, but the entire mind, body, and spirit for its patients.
In order to carry out its care goals, Mountain States implemented Allscripts in 2010 for its ambulatory practices, helping physicians coordinate care and zero in on specific population needs. Since implementation, Mountain States has had one hospital achieve HIMSS Stage 6.
