Western healthcare system selects Allscripts
The Poudre Valley Health System (PVHS) has selected Allscripts as an EHR and practice management provider to automate and connect clinical and administrative processes for its medical staff of independent physicians. PVHS has purchased 200 licenses for the combined Allscripts services.

PVHS is a regional, not-for-profit healthcare network serving Northern Colorado, southern Wyoming and western Nebraska. The healthcare system includes two full-service hospitals with 417 licensed beds, and a medical staff of more than 500 physicians, according to the Chicago-based Allscripts.

The company said that PVHS will offer the combined EHR-PM system to regional primary care physicians who have a relationship with the hospital. Practices may choose to implement either the combined solution or the EHR alone.

Allscripts said it will also connect its solutions with PVHS’s existing inpatient information system from Meditech, enabling staff physicians and authorized caregivers at any PVHS facility to access each patient’s medication history, problems list, allergies, notes from previous visits and other key clinical information.
