Allscripts introduces new iPhone native application

Allscripts Remote to connect physicians with real time patient information

By CBR Staff Writer

Allscripts has introduced Allscripts Remote, a new iPhone native application that provides physicians virtually anytime, anywhere access to and control of its electronic health records.

The company said that, with Allscripts Remote, physicians can now make critical medical decisions even when they are away from the office, with all relevant information available on their phone. Also available for the Apple iPod touch, Allscripts Remote delivers an interactive connection to the Allscripts Enterprise and Professional electronic health records.

The company also said that the capabilities include quick access to real-time patient summary information; fast communication to local hospital emergency rooms; convenient ePrescribing to the patient’s regular pharmacy; and real-time access to all the information a physician needs to make decisions, including medical history, lab results and medications.

According to the company, patients also benefit from Allscripts Remote because the service improves continuity of care with a medical summary faxed to the emergency room and annotated with the provider’s instructions, and provides safer medications with accurate medication and allergy lists combined with drug interaction checking.

Glen Tullman, CEO of Allscripts, said: Physicians are quick to adopt technology that delivers clear benefits to their patients while making their own lives easier, and Allscripts Remote delivers on both counts. For any physician who uses iPhone or plans to, there’s no better way to connect to real-time information and new capabilities that not only make it easier for them to make informed clinical decisions, but save them time. It’s all about connecting.
