UMass Memorial Health Care (Worcester, Mass) picked the Chicago-based Allscripts EHR and Practice Management solution as the preferred solution for private physicians in its community, including the nearly 2,000 physicians affiliated with the health system.

The Allscripts EHR includes two days of onsite training, one day of post-implementation training, and one day of customization. In addition, says the company, UMass Memorial will connect the Allscripts solution to its other information systems to provide electronic orders and results as an integral part of the solution.

UMass Memorial is the clinical partner of University of Massachusetts Medical School and the largest healthcare system in Central and Western Massachusetts. The system includes UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, Mass. and four community hospitals: Clinton Hospital in Clinton; HealthAlliance Hospital in Leominster and Fitchburg; Marlborough Hospital in Marlborough, and Wing Memorial Hospital in Palmer, MA.
