In a one paragraph statement,  Chicago-based EHR vendor, Allscripts Healthcare Solutions has announced it is dropping its lawsuit against the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation over the latter awarding an EHR implementation contract to the Verona, Wis.-based Epic Corporation. In the statement, Allscripts says it looks forward to working with the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation in the future.

Last year, Allscripts lost its bid to Epic to implement an EHR across New York City’s public health system, which encompasses 11 public hospitals 70 clinics, and thousands of doctors, and serves more than one million patients. According to a report from The New York Times, Allscripts claimed that when all ancillary costs were included, its system would be more than $700 million less expensive to implement than would the Epic system. “

In a recent interview with HCI, Paul Black, CEO of Allscripts (who came into office after this lawsuit was announced), wouldn’t comment on the lawsuit.
