New rebranding information - Allscripts had renamed many of their current products, read the entire article for additional information from the conference. BD
Allscripts has decided to rebrand their “solutions”!
Maybe it’s unavoidable in a time of consolidations and acquisitions that these companies will reevaluate their portfolios of applications from time to time and try to give them names that will make them easier to describe and sell. But it’s a real pain for existing customers to reprogram your users. No more Touchworks?
In a nutshell, what they’ve done is taken all the products that they’ve developed or acquired and relabeled them with some variety of “Allscripts” moniker.
Canopy and ECIN are now Allscripts Care Management and Allscripts Post Acute Care.
Impact.MD is now Allscripts Document Management.
HealthMatics ED and EmSTAT are part of Allscripts ED.
Touchworks is now Allscripts Enterprise- made up of Allscripts Enterprise EHR and Allscripts Enterprise PM. That’s a mouth full.
eRxNow and Touchscript all fall under Allscripts ePrescribe.
HealthMatics Office, which was made up of HealthMatics EHR and HealthMatics Ntierprise will now be Allscripts Professional- EHR and PM.
So now we’ll start weaning people away from Touchworks and toward Enterprise.
I wonder how Microsoft has gotten by with calling that spreadsheet product “Excel” all these years?
