Allscripts Sunrise Platform Selected by King's College Hospital

Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc.MDRX recently announced that its Sunrise platform has been selected as an Electronic Patient Record ("EPR") system by U.K.-based King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. The hospital has a modest footprint in the region with roughly 1400 beds in two sites.

Allscripts' Sunrise platform provides a complete range of fully integrated inpatient, ambulatory, emergency care and surgical care solutions to electronic health record (EHR) clients.

We believe that the new contract will help Allscripts' Sunrise platform gain better market traction, which will result in better business for the company. It has been a story of constant achievements for Allscripts' Sunrise platform. From winning industry recognitions to fetching new clients, the platform has indeed lived up to expectations and helped the company achieve growth over time.

Notably, this October, Allscripts' Sunrise platform was selected by University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust ("UHSM") and Baptist Health Care Corporation.

In August this year, research company Black Book handed over a coveted recognition to Allscripts for operational superiority. Further, the Sunrise platform was named as the top inpatient EHR used in large hospitals and academic medical centers in 2014 as well as 2015.

In May 2015, the Sunrise EHR platform was picked by OH-based Grand Lake Health System as the core EHR for its community of medical centers to advance support care and patient management efforts.
