Two providers of clinical software, information and connectivity solutions for physicians, Chicago-based Allscripts and Atlanta-based Eclipsys, have announced a definitive agreement to merge in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $1.3 billion. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Eclipsys stockholders will receive 1.2 shares of Allscripts for each share of Eclipsys.

The combined company’s client base will include over 180,000 U.S. physicians, 1,500 hospitals, and nearly 10,000 nursing homes, hospices, home care and other post-acute care facilities.

Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts, will be the Chief Executive Officer of the combined company.
