Extending its relationship with Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. ( MDRX ), U.S.-based Wheeling Hospital renewed its contract to use Allscripts Sunrise Electronic Health Record (EHR) system through 2021. Under the renewed contract, Wheeling Hospital also added Allscripts Sunrise Financial Manager to its suite of Allscripts open platform solutions.

Additionally, Allscripts and Wheeling Hospital entered into a partnership under which the former will provide education, roadmaps, audits and surveys to the hospital to build processes and programs.

The rationale behind this collaboration is to enable Wheeling Hospital to achieve the HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) Stage 7 Certification. EMRAM is a methodology that measures the progress and impact of EHR systems on organizations in the HIMSS Analytics Database.

Allscripts Sunrise EHR is a comprehensive suite of fully integrated population health capabilities comprising inpatient, ambulatory, emergency care and surgical care solutions. It provides innovative Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) and features, including integrated pharmacy, knowledge-based medication administration and patient portal solutions.

Allscripts Sunrise Financial Manager offers a wide-range of financial solutions for revenue management in hospitals and health systems. Apart from providing revenue cycle functionality, Allscripts Sunrise Financial Manager also offers a strong foundation that helps enterprises to expand and adapt to new reimbursement and care models such as accountable care organizations (ACOs).

Wheeling Hospital also selected Allscripts FollowMyHealth patient engagement platform to allow convenient online access to health information. The portal, which integrates all systems across the enterprise, enables patients or family members to fill forms, view test results, refill prescriptions, request appointments and communicate with physicians.

By leveraging Allscripts Sunrise EHR and several of its open platform solutions, Wheeling Hospital intends to meet regulatory requirements, manage population health and improve patient outcomes across all its facilities.

Allscripts Sunrise platform is gaining increasing popularity among healthcare providers and hospitals. Since Jan 2013, there have been over 20 new Allscripts Sunrise commitments at existing client facilities or at new organizations globally.

Last week, NY-based Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre installed Allscripts dbMotion population health analytics solution at its facility and also extended its use of the Allscripts Sunrise EHR platform. In the same month, Children's of Alabama, a Birmingham-based pediatric medical center, extended its commitment to the Allscripts Sunrise EHR through 2023.

In this era of enhanced interoperability and connectivity, Allscripts continues to empower healthcare providers with its innovative and integrated population health management solutions. With its consistent efforts, Allscripts aims to drive positive patient outcomes and ultimately transform the healthcare industry.
