UBMD Deploys Allscripts Electronic Health Record To Improve Services

UBMD, a multispecialty group practice whose 450 physicians are faculty at the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, has selected Allscripts Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution to help its physicians improve the quality of patient care, patient communications, and better manage the cost of care delivery.

UBMD physicians working in 18 practices will initially adopt the EHR for 35 physicians and intends to complete the deployment for all physicians within two years.

Allscripts has said that UBMD will deploy its Analytics to help with research efforts, which enables automatic tracking of performance on financial and quality measures and also provides proactive patient and population management.

Allscripts will also integrate the EHR with UBMD’s existing practice management system from GE, and with the inpatient information systems of its teaching hospitals.

Michael Quinn, chief financial officer of UBMD, said: The Allscripts electronic health record will let us develop a single, comprehensive patient record across multiple practices while still enabling our physicians in different specialties to refine and customize the type of information they enter and the way they work.

“Now each provider in our 18 practices will be able to see what’s going on with the patient, which supports our effort to deliver one-stop shopping for patients by referring them to other UBMD providers. It’s a streamlined experience for both patients and providers.

Glen Tullman, CEO of Allscripts, said: We are grateful that UBMD selected Allscripts as their partner in developing a unified patient record that will drive critical information to their providers wherever they need it – in the clinic, or in the hospital, or while working remotely.
