Allscripts Healthcare Solutions Inc

Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) announced the acquisition of privately-held Oasis Medical Solutions Limited, a London-based Patient Administration System (PAS) and health informatics solution provider. The Oasis™ PAS system, developed over 18 years in partnership with numerous NHS trusts, provides flexible, efficient and scalable administrative workflow across all venues of care. By combining the Oasis PAS technology with the Allscripts Sunrise clinical platform, Allscripts will offer a highly competitive, single-source offering for an innovative and advanced electronic patient record solution throughout the United Kingdom.

The Oasis PAS is used extensively across the NHS in more than a dozen NHS trusts and hospitals. Clients include East Sussex Healthcare, Royal Surrey County Hospital Trust, Medway NHS Foundation Trust and Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, among others. Oasis hospital clients average over 500 beds per facility, and the company has distinguished itself for its exclusive focus on PAS solutions for the NHS trusts that are innovative, effective, affordable and flexible.

Allscripts has a proven track record of success for clinical solutions, specifically the Allscripts Sunrise clinical electronic health record for inpatient and outpatient care management. Today, Sunrise is live at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as well as at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust. In addition, Allscripts recently announced the opening of its European headquarters in Manchester, UK, committing additional resources to this important healthcare market.

By combining a leading PAS offering with its advanced clinical solution, Allscripts will provide the UK NHS trusts with the clear long-term advantages of integrated workflow between PAS and clinical solutions and the benefit of one business partner that provides a single-source electronic patient record to improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare delivery.

“The United Kingdom is an important growth market for Allscripts core clinical and PAS solutions,” said Richard Berner, President, Allscripts International. “A strong clinical offering combined with a highly regarded PAS provides a complete and proven solution to meet the critical long-term needs of the NHS Trusts. By acquiring Oasis, we believe we have optimised our position in the market and expect to drive significant value from this combination for our clients.”
