Allscripts, the EHR company that was one of the first to enable mobile phones to access EHRs from remote locations continues to gain in popularity, especially in North Carolina.  A recent press release detailing how MedWest Health Systems chose Allscripts shed some light onto the gains Allscript has made in the state of North Carolina:

“Allscripts clearly has superior features and functionality, but what really tipped the scales in their favor was their demonstrated ability to implement and support the technology across a large physician enterprise,” commented Steve Heatherly, Chief Strategy Officer and Vice President of Ambulatory Services for MedWest. “In addition, we’ve always planned to share the electronic health record with our non-employed community doctors as part of our physician integration strategy, and Allscripts has significant experience with similar deployment models.”

MedWest adds to the Allscripts market-leading client footprint in North Carolina, where the company provides solutions to more than 3,300 individual physician practices.

Allscripts allows it’s electronic health record to be accessed off site via the iPhone, Blackberry, and Windows mobile phone. We spoke with Allscripts executives during our coverage of HIMSS – currently we’re still waiting on Android compatibility for the EHR.
