Allscripts focuses on extending its global leadership position by enhancing client-driven emergency, acute and ambulatory updates and adding substantial features for non-U.S. markets.

CHICAGO, Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Sunrise™ Version 14.1, the Allscripts integrated suite of solutions for acute, post acute, ambulatory, revenue cycle and emergency health care providers, is now generally available. Sunrise 14.1 (formerly designated Sunrise 6.2) provides significant advancements to Sunrise Ambulatory Care™, Sunrise Emergency Care™ and Sunrise Access Manager™, a streamlined workflow interface for facility tracking boards, and new capabilities to meet the specific needs of markets outside the United States.

"In addition to delivering on our vision of an Open, Connected Community of Health, we listened to our global client base, delivering many new features in Sunrise 14.1," said Jim Hewitt, Senior Vice President, Solutions Development for Allscripts. "This integrated release also includes requirements for clients in certain countries outside the United States, where we are seeing growing interest in our solutions." The previous release - Sunrise 6.1 - fully meets 2014 HITECH (Meaningful Use Stages 1 and 2) certification standards for U.S. clients.

Facility tracking boards with status-at-a-glance and Workflow Management Tool

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
