This informative session introduced attendees to Allscripts uniquely open APIs. Allscripts is a major EHR provider for more than 180,000 physicians and 1,500 hospitals across the U.S. Allscripts provided an introduction to its’ open APIs, demonstrated sample code, and answered any questions the audience had about joining the Allscripts Developer Program and partnering with Allscripts. Also included in this session was a preview of the Allscripts Developer Portal, which is unlike anything else in the health care IT industry.
Stanley is the Chief Innovation Officer at Allscripts in charge of driving Allscripts’ open innovation strategy. Formerly the Chief Technology Officer, Stanley’s vision and energy have made Allscripts a leader amongst developer friendly-electronic medical records.
Ryan Panchadsaram, Jess Jacobs, and Stanley Crane respond to questions on m-Health, device regulation, FDA expansion, and patient safety in this question and answer segment.
Stanley Crane, Chief Innovation Officer at Allscripts, speaks to the expanding possibility for creativity for designers and new startups. He strives to harness the latest software development, QA, database, Web and infrastructure technologies to solve business problems and fundamentally change the way business is done.
Stanley has a high profile job. He told us that there are thousands of developers at Allscripts but CEO Glen Tullman knows the name of every one of his small team. He’ll be showing us The Wand, a native iPad application that extends the most commonly used functions for EHRs, supporting clinicians’ needs across the continuum of care. And Stanley’s goal for The Wand? “Make it easy”.
Compared to other major industries the health care industry has been slow to adopt technologies to make the delivery of care more efficient. Although the recent infusion of billions of dollars into health information technology by the federal government has encouraged providers and hospitals to adopt efficiency-enhancing technologies like electronic medical records, many critical health services are still delivered using inefficient systems and processes. We’ll hear from a range of companies creating and marketing technologies that will make the delivery of care quicker, faster and cheaper.
