Allscripts Expands Patient Administration System Presence in United Kingdom

AllscriptsAllscripts (Nasdaq:MDRX) is pleased to announce East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust and Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust have each signed an agreement to deploy Allscripts PASTM. The Allscripts PAS will replace the Trusts' existing system and will empower the organsations to use a highly flexible and configurable solution to manage patient data. Allscripts PAS is used across the National Health Service (NHS) in more than a dozen trusts and hospitals.

"East Kent is committed to 'putting patients first,' and our agreement to deploy the Allscripts PAS will help us better deliver value-added comprehensive client care," said Andrew Barker, Chief Information Officer. "Allscripts has shown that it offers a value-added, best-in-class solution, for us to keep on delivering excellent care for patients."

"At Maidstone and Tunbridge, patients are our number-one focus, and we look forward to further enhancing their experience through Allscripts PAS," said Angela Gallagher, Chief Operating Officer. "The integrated workflow and the flexibility of the solution will enable our organisation to continually improve the efficiency of our care and make smarter decisions for our patients."

"East Kent and Maidstone and Tunbridge support our vision for how to transform health care in the UK," said Rich Berner, President of Allscripts International. "We are honored to have them join the Allscripts family and look forward to partnering with these NHS trusts to help them better serve their communities with greater quality and efficiency."

These deployments reflect Allscripts continued expansion and progress in the UK. Last month, the company was awarded a place on the NHS SBS Clinical Information Systems Framework. The Framework can help NHS Trusts by providing access to critical technology like the solutions Allscripts' offer, reducing procurement costs and enabling the NHS Trusts to localise their requirements.
