United Regional Health Care System Selects Allscripts Care Management

United Regional Health Care System will deploy Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Care Management to continue to deliver excellence in health care for the communities it serves. The addition of the Care Management system will transform the administrative process for United Regional, streamlining and improving the quality of patient care, improving efficiency, and generating cost savings.

"United Regional has an unwavering commitment to delivering excellent care across our entire continuum, and Allscripts will help us standardize our case management throughout the organization," said Phyllis Cowling, President and Chief Executive Officer of United Regional.

Allscripts Care Management will build on United Regional's portfolio of Allscripts solutions including Sunrise Clinical Manager, Sunrise ED Manager and Sunrise Record Manager.

"Allscripts Care Management will enable us to take full advantage of the Sunrise suite of solutions," said Nancy Townley, Chief Operating Officer of United Regional. "Ultimately with Allscripts, we can collect all of our patient information and present it to caregivers in a single view. This single source of validated information will require users to enter only one place, one time and will enable them to retrieve all data."

Providing a single worklist for all care management processes, the Allscripts system transforms the administrative process for hospitals and post-acute care facilities.
