On late Tuesday, Allscripts announced an integration partnership with healthtech startup Hospital IQ to integrate its operationally-focused predictive analytics platform with Allscripts’ Sunrise® EHR. The integration will empower Allscripts and EPSi customers to become more operationally streamlined, saving a huge chunk of time and money. Using the platform means they can align resources including staff, schedules and capacity with patient flow. Additionally, the integration will help Allscripts customers to save money, reduce uncertainty and improve the quality of care.
