About Allscripts Developer Program (ADP)

The Allscripts Developer Program enables outside developers to build
innovations for clients and get them tested and approved to run on Allscripts
Electronic Health Records. For example, MyCareTeam created an app where
providers can access reports on their diabetic patients from the Allscripts
Electronic Health Record, which include blood glucose readings as well as
progress on diet and exercise, so caregivers can easily monitor a patient's
progress against the treatment plan, and patients feel more engaged in their
own health.
