Henry Schein Inc, Melville, NY, and Allscripts, Chicago, a provider of software, services, information, and connectivity solutions for physicians and hospitals, have announced a partnership to market the Allscripts Professional™ Electronic Health Record (EHR).

Under the partnership, the Henry Schein medical sales force will exclusively market the Allscripts Professional EHR to physicians nationwide. Henry Schein will also work with its medical device and productivity partners to drive full integration of their solutions into the Allscripts EHR, eventually providing a fully integrated patient experience.

“Given that the federal government is providing significant financial incentives for physicians to adopt electronic health records, we expect that many of our physician customers will be looking for a quality solution and are proud to represent Allscripts,” said Stanley M. Bergman, chairman and CEO of Henry Schein in an announcement.

According to the company, the Allscripts Professional EHR is a solution for practices of all sizes and settings that provides caregivers instant and secure access to complete patient record anytime and anywhere, while automating everyday clinical tasks and connecting physicians to pharmacies, laboratories, and other health care stakeholders. Allscripts Professional EHR also produces the detailed quality reports that are increasingly required by Medicare and other health care payors.
