The Chicago-based electronic health records (EHR) vendor, Allscripts is laying off 250 employees, or 3.5 percent of its workforce.

The company confirmed the layoffs in an email to Healthcare Informatics. Allscripts spokesperson Concetta DiFranco said, "As a normal course of business, we are rebalancing our teams to ensure we have the right resources allocated to the right projects. This activity is in step with the guidance we provided to the market on May 7 when we announced record bookings. Delivering for our clients remains our first priority and we are confident about 2015 and beyond."

The news was first reported by the Chicago Tribune

The layoffs will occur in the U.S., DiFranco said. They will affect services, support, solutions management, and selling, general and administrative functions.

In the company's recent quarterly earnings report, it announced bookings of $236 million, which was up from the previous year. However, it also revealed its revenue and gross margins declined.
