San Diego health system connects with Allscripts
Sharp HealthCare has selected the Allscripts Community Record, provided in partnership with health IT company dbMotion, to deliver connectivity across its San Diego-based health system.

Using Allscripts’ technology, Sharp's caregivers and those in affiliated physician practices will share access to one unified patient record, according to Chicago-based Allscripts.

Sharp has deployed the Allscripts EHR for all of its employed physicians. The EHR, automating clinical processes and connecting providers to each other, forms the basis of the Allscripts Community Record, the company stated. Sharp also utilizes the Allscripts Care Management tool in all of its hospitals, and the provider's five post-acute facilities use the Allscripts Referral Management program to capture electronic patient referrals from Care Management, Allscripts added.
