Poudre Valley Health System Selects Allscripts Electronic Health Record

November 7, 2007 – Medical software maker Allscripts said today Poudre Valley Health System (PVHS) selected its electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) system to automate and connect clinical and administrative processes for its medical staff of independent physicians.

Initially, PVHS - a regional, nonprofit healthcare network serving northern Colorado, southern Wyoming, and western Nebraska - has purchased 200 licenses for the combined Allscripts solution. PVHS is

“Information technology has helped us remain at the forefront of patient care, and this agreement with Allscripts delivers a significant boost to that effort,” said Rulon Stacey, president and CEO of PVHS. “We believe the electronic health record will help us improve patient care and safety, contain costs, and streamline work processes, while creating a hospital-based community model allowing physicians across the northern Rocky Mountain region to offer truly integrated patient care.”

PVHS will offer the combined EHR-PM system from Allscripts to regional primary care physicians who have a relationship with the hospital. Practices may choose to implement either the full, combined solution or the electronic health record alone. In offering the technology to nonemployed physicians, PVHS is taking advantage of recent changes to federal regulations that are making it easier for hospitals to provide funding to connect physicians and hospitals. The federal Stark regulation, which limits the scope of hospital-physician relationships, has been modified to enable hospitals to assist nonemployed physicians in adopting healthcare information technologies, including electronic health records, to enhance patient safety and quality of care.

The Allscripts Electronic Health Record provides PVHS physicians with instant access to patient information when and where they need it - at the hospital, in their offices, or while on-call at home. The Web-based solution automates everyday clinical tasks such as prescribing and refilling medications, ordering and reviewing tests, and documenting patient care. Reportedly easy to use and customize, the EHR features clinical tools that support safe medical practices, including health maintenance alerts, clinical decision support, and automated drug safety checking.
