Projects range from utilization management tools, clinical documentation, billing workflows and more. “Right now I have […]

Reading about all the outcomes, I was inspired by how our clients use Allscripts solutions in a variety of ways to continually improve health care.  It’s proof that our partnership — along with our Open platform — helps clients to achieve excellence in health care.
