Top 3 Reasons Allscripts is the Best Inpatient EHR Vendor

A market leader in its own right, Allscripts Sunrise is a top choice as inpatient EHR vendor across the board — and the recognition is there to prove it. In fact, Black Book Market Research recently named Allscripts as the top overall inpatient electronic health record (EHR) for large hospitals and academic medical centers for the third year in a row. Not only did Allscripts take the cake for overall honors, it was named top vendor in the patient health data management and administrative processing, as well as the top vendor in the communications and connectivity categories, according to The Business Journals. Other honors included vendor overall preference/vertical industry recommendations for Meaningful Use Stage 1 and Stage 2, and best of breed technology and process improvement for Meaningful Use Stage 3.

Receiving these accolades has pushed Allscripts to the top of the heap when it comes to inpatient EHR vendors. Let’s take a look at three reasons why they’re considered the best.

  1. Integrated Solution Suite: One of the most important aspects of an in-patient EHR vendor is the ability to provide one repository for acute, post-acute, ambulatory, revenue cycle and emergency health care providers. By offering one EHR for emergency, inpatient and ambulatory care along with an easily-accessible patient portal, you’re getting everything you need in one spot without the need for other software, programs or solutions. With Allscripts Sunrise, medical staff are also allowed access to integrated patient information across all platforms, with its use occurring through several of the top  hospitals and health systems on the planet. Clinical decision support is made easier as a result.
  2. A Proven History: Allscripts has already proven its abilities within the ambulatory systems industry, so it stands to reason the transition into the hospital arena just six years ago due to a merger with Eclipsys would go smoothly. Today, its product line can go toe-to-toe with other giants of industry, including Meditech and Cerner. The effect is far-reaching: Allscripts has products installed in 50,000 physician practices, 1,500 hospitals, and 10,000 post-acute care facilities, according to InformationWeek Healthcare.
  3. Accolades Recognizing Allscripts’ Work: In addition to the above distinction by Black Book, other organizations it seems are also happy with Allscripts’ approach of in-patient EHR vendor management. In 2014, LAS Research named Allscripts Sunrise Clinical Manager Best in KLAS Global (Non-US) Acute EMR and Category Leader, Global Acute EMR – Northern America (Canada) in the 2014 Best in KLAS: Global Software (Non-US) report. Also this year, King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in the UK named Allscripts Sunrise platform as its top Electronic Patient Record (“EPR”) system. University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust and Baptist Health Care Corporation also selected Allscripts as its chosen platform late last year.

It seems Allscripts is here to stay as a major player in the global EHR marketplace.
