“After installing the core electronic medical records technologies at the hospitals, we are ready to accelerate the development of innovative applications to increase healthcare staff's productivity as they extend care to patients in community facilities and at home,“ she added.

Under the collaboration agreement, Allscripts will train staff on various aspects of software development while IHiS will supply the healthcare staff and other resources needed for software trials.

The initiative will initially target medication management but will also tackle other areas of patient care, including emergency, critical care, automated care processes, tele-health, mobile health and healthcare analytics.
