Allscripts Opens European Headquarters in Manchester

AllscriptsAllscripts, a global healthcare IT company, opened its new European headquarters today in Manchester, United Kingdom. The selection of Manchester is expected to result in skilled jobs creation and strong links with the NHS and local academic centres.

Allscripts has worked with pioneering NHS bodies for many years and specialises in technology that will help the NHS meet a number of its national objectives. It has chosen Manchester as a regional flagship location over a number of other European cities.

Allscripts provides electronic patient record technology that enables NHS organisations to deliver critical information where it needs to be. It facilitates better sharing of patient information between medical professionals, so that they can deliver more effective care to patients. This also enables the NHS to provide patients with access to their own records, encouraging them to take greater participation in their own care.

Allscripts chose Manchester for a variety of reasons, including

  • Informatics skills base,
  • Strong international links, and
  • Value for money over other locations, which will provide savings that can be passed on to NHS clients.

Allscripts expects to create more than 100 highly skilled jobs over the next two or three years, with recruitment in research and software development, sales, project management and implementation services.

Manchester also appealed to Allscripts as the company has already delivered electronic patient record systems to two NHS organisations in the North West: Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Allscripts solutions have helped both of those trusts deliver better and safer patient care.

Sir David Dalton, Chief Executive at Salford Royal, stated, "We're pleased Allscripts is making Manchester its permanent European headquarters. We’ve seen a fantastic level of support from Allscripts and look forward to working even more closely with them to help improve our patient outcomes."

Allscripts is also using its new headquarters to engage with local educational establishments and to become involved in the local informatics community. The company is in talks with Salford University to provide support around its informatics programme and advice on the curriculum for a master’s degree in health informatics. Allscripts also seeks to support staff development within the NHS through the sponsorship of NHS staff through national management programmes.

Stuart Miller, Managing Director of Europe for Allscripts stated, "Our decision to make Manchester Allscripts permanent European home reflects our commitment to the UK healthcare and technology communities. With Manchester's excellent transportation links we can easily service the healthcare IT needs of not only the United Kingdom but also Europe. We look forward to working with NHS and other healthcare providers in continuing to help improve their clinical and financial outcomes though the use and adoption of healthcare IT solutions."
