Allscripts Rapid Install(TM) Application Deployments Help Physician Practices Improve Care Delivery
Open platform enables Allscripts clients to use new apps within minutes after purchase
Commitment to transformational innovation earns award for Allscripts Chief Innovation Officer
Allscripts Rapid Install™ is just one potential benefit of the flexibility of Allscripts Open platform. The Open platform reduces or eliminates the cost, time and planning involved in traditional HL7 interface implementations. As a result, physician practices can quickly deploy many Allscripts Developer Program (ADP) partner applications with little or no implementation cost. Once the practice has the Allscripts Unity™ interface engine, it acts like a power strip. The practice can then buy and use as many certified developer applications as it wants, quickly and seamlessly. Several recent installations prove that Allscripts clients can quickly activate the innovative tools they need.
Care coordination: Meeting requirements for new CMS Chronic Care Management program
Arbor Family Medicine (
Allscripts partner CareSync developed a chronic care application that combines easy-to-use technology for patients with nursing services to help providers meet the requirements of the new CMS Chronic Care Management reimbursement opportunity. Arbor Family Medicine was up and running with CareSync just 43 minutes after signing the contract.
"At first we were excited about the new Medicare Chronic Care Management coding, but we quickly realized that regardless of our intent, we couldn't qualify to bill for it without hiring additional staff and building an infrastructure. CareSync already has the staff and the training to partner with us to get our patients under control. Their work will help us hit a large number of patient-centered medical home (PCMH) goals as well," Ann Arbor Physician Dr.
Efficiency: Customized appointment reminders help reduce no-shows
The practice implemented RemindMe, an application from Allscripts partner Talksoft, to contact its patients with custom reminders for upcoming appointments. Easy to set up, it took less than three hours after the client signed with Talksoft to implement the tool proven to reduce no-shows.
"The Talksoft set up was simple, quick and offered the customization our office was looking for," said
