Allscripts ACE event 2013 – Chicago, IL, August 20-23, 2013

The Allscripts Client Experience (ACE) is the company’s annual user conference. It offers registrants access to educational sessions, networking opportunities and more. During the event, Allscripts shows clients how to get even more value from the solutions they are using and how to prepare for the enormous change the industry is undergoing. The company also celebrates new innovations and shares many client success stories.

The Analyst’s Perspective by Daniel Ruppar, Research Director, Connected Health (Twitter @danielruppar)

We were invited to come to ACE again this year to hear perspectives from major EHR vendor Allscripts as part of their annual user event. There was a lot of discussion around the products from the Q1 acquisition activity announced at HIMSS from dbMotion and Jardogs. That’s probably timely but the messaging on the dbMotion side was a little thick. It does however help with previous issues regarding interoperability within their own EHR portfolio, and more interestingly presents an Allscripts brand solution which can also provide reach to other vendor systems from EPIC, Cerner, etc…To the point where this was discussed as a point for providers to look to when the question is raised about rip and replace. Overall, positive – now let’s see how that goes in the market.

President and CEO Paul Black also presented a strong front regarding vision of the company, investment in R&D in the highest level in the company’s history, stability of the business financially, the importance of their work in population health, and other points to reassure users, investors and other interested parties like us in Allscripts having a roadmap for the future. Given my own interests, I also was very intrigued by the point of further global expansion being a core point to Allscripts strategy going forward. Their latest new one is Australia; unfortunately I can’t tell you what I learned about other countries of target interest. Overall this was a great event, and hope to share more with you upcoming in our research.
