CHICAGO, June 12, 2013

CHICAGO, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust has
successfully implemented Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Sunrise Clinical Manager
(SCM). The activation occurred the weekend of June 8^th; three months ahead of
schedule, and on budget.

Sunrise Clinical Manager is an acute care Electronic Health Record. The new
system will help Salford Royal, one of the UK's highest regarded healthcare
providers, transform its caregiving. Having utilized an Electronic Patient
Record (EPR) for over ten years, Salford Royal's investment in Sunrise
Clinical Manager and its innovative technology will allow the organization to
accelerate the pace of transformation and provide better quality and safer
care for its 238,000 patients.

After nine months of planning, Salford Royal migrated one million patient
records and 180 million results, orders and documents from its old system into
Sunrise Clinical Manager during the rollout weekend. During the first four
days, more than 56,000 orders, results and documents were viewed and entered
electronically into the SCM system by more than 3350 caregivers. The peak
number of users logged in at any one time was 600. Live areas of the system
include EPMA, Order Communications, results reporting, nursing assessments,
doctors' notes, clinical summaries and clinical decision support. The system
is now live across all of Salford Royal's wards and clinics.

Salford Royal's Director of Finance and Deputy Chief Executive Tony Whitfield
said: "We are delighted to be able to implement our new EPR. We chose
Allscripts because they have a proven track record in North America and will
help us provide high quality patient care.

"The transfer to the new system has been a huge undertaking with our priority
being to maintain the smooth and safe running of the organisation over the
transition period. I am immensely proud of the Salford Royal transition team,
who came together from different professions and areas of the organization,
and worked tirelessly over the weekend. This was coupled with the outstanding
support provided by Allscripts USA experts, which enabled the inevitable
challenges to be tackled quickly and the risk of disruption to patient care

"We are now at the start of a very exciting journey and look forward to
working with Allscripts over the coming months to explore the rich
functionality available to us via the new EPR system. Salford Royal has an
ambition to be the safest organization in the NHS and our new EPR supports us
in working towards this."

Sunrise Clinical Manager provides an advanced Computerized Provider Order
Entry (CPOE), as well as an integrated pharmacy, knowledge-based medication
administration, a patient portal and acute critical care solutions. Over the
next six months, Salford Royal plans to activate bed management, advanced
documentation for Emergency Department and Critical Care and integrate
biomedical devices to capture patient data.

"I am thrilled at the successful, early and on-budget activation at Salford
Royal and the joint effort of the hospital's physicians, nurses and
information system department and the Allscripts team," said Paul M. Black,
Allscripts President and Chief Executive Officer. "Allscripts is committed to
helping Salford Royal provide excellent, efficient care."

The addition of Sunrise Clinical Manager now places Salford Royal at the
forefront of healthcare informatics and will enable the organization to
introduce further innovation. Salford Royal plans to offer patients access to
an online portal where they can view their health records.
