We’re renaming our ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) solution for larger practices: Allscripts Enterprise EHRTM is now Allscripts TouchWorks® EHR.
Enterprise replaced the TouchWorks brand in 2008, but we found that it caused confusion in the marketplace. “Enterprise” can describe an industry-wide EHR licensing model, or it can suggest that it is a solution for both acute and ambulatory segments.
So, we’re returning to TouchWorks, which better represents this intuitive, provider-friendly solution. As one client told me, “Our providers still call it TouchWorks anyway.” I believe clients will take the transition in stride.
There is no change to the solution right now. But several improvements are underway, including changes to the User Interface (UI) over time.
We plan to build on the momentum this solution has achieved, including an 11% year-over-year improvement in overall KLAS score. Our large practice EHR meets the needs of healthcare organizations today and tomorrow, with benefits such as:
1. Designed by physicians, for physicians. TouchWorks enables an efficient workflow in the exam room, which gives physicians more time to spend with patients.
2. Enables customization. Physicians can change the system’s documentation and reporting functions to meet their needs, making it easier to effectively and efficiently care for patients.
3. Works well with other solutions. Open architecture facilitates interoperability with other Allscripts and third-party solutions.
4. A healthy core EHR. It’s the starting point of effective population health management, a strategic imperative for many healthcare organizations.
