CHICAGO & REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Allscripts (MDRX: NASDAQ) and Microsoft Corp. announced the extension of their long-standing strategic alliance to enable the expanded development and delivery of cloud-based health IT solutions. The five-year extension will support Allscripts’ cloud-based Sunrise™ electronic health record, making Microsoft the cloud provider for the solution and opening up co-innovation opportunities to help transform healthcare with smarter, more scalable technology. The alliance will enable Allscripts to harness the power of Microsoft’s platform and tools, including Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Teams and Power BI, creating a more seamless and highly productive user experience. Allscripts is an award-winning Microsoft partner with past recognitions including 2019 U.S. Healthcare Partner of the Year and 2017 Global Healthcare Partner of the Year (Public Sector), and most recently received Microsoft’s 2020 Health Innovation – Reimagine Healthcare award for its subsidiary 2bPrecise.

Sunrise is an integrated EHR that connects all aspects of care, including acute, ambulatory, surgical, pharmacy, radiology and laboratory services including an integrated revenue cycle and patient administration system. Sunrise is a clinician-friendly, evidence-based single platform with integrated analytics that helps deliver better health outcomes in hospitals around the world.

Cloud-based Sunrise will offer many added benefits beyond the on-premise version that will improve organizational effectiveness, solution interoperability, clinician ease of use and an improved patient experience. Client benefits include a subscription model delivering faster implementations and lower annual upgrade costs, helping organizations leverage the software without increasing burdens on their internal IT resources. The cloud-based Sunrise solution will provide enhanced security, scalability and flexibility, as well as the opportunity to add new capabilities quickly as business needs and the cloud evolve. The cloud-based solution will also include expanded analytics and insights functionality that can quickly engage with the Internet of Things. Finally, the cloud-based Sunrise solution will include a marketplace that enables healthcare apps and third parties to easily integrate with a hospital EHR. Allscripts clients will begin to see these updates by the end of 2020.
