My first three months with Allscripts have been exciting. Opportunities to help clients outside the United States are growing by the quarter — with both electronic patient record* and population health management solutions.

To better assist our clients, we’ve launched a more focused approach. A managing director will lead each region, including Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Asia Pacific (APAC), and Canada.

Our clients have had the following recent accomplishments I’d like to share:

Canada Health Infoway certification 

Earlier this month, Sunrise Ambulatory Care™ Module versions 5.5, 6.0 and 6.1 achieved Infoway‘s J-class, Laboratories and Clinical Documents Ambulatory Electronic Medical Record (EMR) certification. This recognition means our solution conforms to national and international standards for privacy, security and interoperability. It’s the first ambulatory solution from a major vendor to earn this recognition. You can learn more at the Infoway 2013 Fall Partnership Conference this week.

Clients achieve high scores on a United Kingdom Health IT index

EHI Intelligence published its inaugural Clinical Digital Maturity Index (CDMI), which ranks each of the 160 NHS Foundation Trust Hospitals. The index models the presence of nine administrative and clinical systems across nine levels of increasing complexity. Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital tied for first place, and Salford Royal ranked 18. You can read more about Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, one of only three trusts in the Unite d Kingdom that has all systems in place, in a recent article.

Australia’s first statewide integrated EHR

Noarlunga Hospital has implemented the Allscripts Sunrise Clinical Manager (SCM) Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. The new system is helping Noarlunga’s physicians and clinicians to electronically access patient information at the bedside and throughout the hospital, supporting continuity of care for its patients.

We’re encouraged by these early signs of success. We are continuing to make progress toward our vision of a global Connected Community of Health.

Editor’s Note: Electronic patient record is another term for Electronic Medical Record (EMR) or Electronic Health Record (EHR), more common outside the United States.
