King's College Hospital Launches Allscripts Sunrise(TM)

AllscriptsKing's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has launched the Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Sunrise solution as the foundation for its new health information system. The organisation selected the Allscripts Sunrise platform in late 2015 and completed the deployment of the solution in only eight months - an unprecedented accomplishment for such an implementation.

King's College Hospital (KCH) is one of the United Kingdom's largest teaching hospitals, training more than 900 dentists, 750 doctors and 300 nurses each year. KCH is also one of the UK's leading tertiary centers, delivering first-class training and education opportunities for the region's health professionals, as well as providing a solid foundation for the UK's medical research sector.

"This was fantastic work, managed very capably, and resulting in a seamless launch," said Professor Julia Wendon, Medical Director at King's College Hospital. "I'd like to express my thanks to the King's and Allscripts' teams for their hard work and focus on driving the successful roll out of Allscripts Sunrise. The new system will provide us with an even greater opportunity to transform the care we deliver through the use of better technology for the benefit of patients and users."

Used by many of the leading hospitals and health systems in the world, Allscripts Sunrise is a suite of clinical solutions designed to be highly-configurable for clinician-specific workflows. Ultimately driving the adoption of clinical-decision support, both patients and providers benefit from the opportunity for improved outcomes.

"The partnership between King's College Hospital and Allscripts will enable KCH to continue to develop integrated models of care for its patient population," said Steven Brain, Allscripts UK Managing Director. "The highly successful Allscripts Sunrise implementation is just the beginning - KCH is now equipped to continue significantly advancing health care in the United Kingdom."
