Allscripts and HealthVault PHR

Allscripts is on board as well as NextGen.
Microsoft seems to have overcome the inertia that has delayed interoperablity between EHRs. If they can transfer information with HealthVault can direct communication be far behind? SV

Allscripts (Nasdaq: MDRX), the leading provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, was featured in today’s launch of Microsoft HealthVault at a Washington, DC press conference announcing the new consumer health platform. Allscripts is the first market-leading Electronic Health Record company to offer its products on the HealthVault platform, providing physicians a means of sharing health information over the Internet with their patients.

During the press conference, Allscripts revealed its first product to connect to HealthVault – eRx NOW™, the web-based electronic prescribing solution offered at no cost to physicians across America as a key part of the National ePrescribing Patient Safety Initiative™, (NEPSI™), a coalition of the nation's leading technology and healthcare organizations, including Allscripts and Microsoft.
