Get a healthy dose of information about the fast growing health care technology sector at the Broad Executive Forum of Chicago, May 8, 2012. Glen Tullman, CEO of Allscripts, who led a $1.3 billion acquisition if Eclipsys Corp. in 2010, will talk about the why EHR (electronic health records) is a big deal, affecting the entire health management sector.
“Health Care is the last industry that hasn’t made use of computers and technology to automate and improve efficiency and quality. Our electronic health records flag generics when they’re available, and flag error. And, frankly, our systems save lives. We see a market that is moving and we are well positioned to take advantage of it,” Tullman told Mad Money’s Jim Cramer in a CNBC interview in late 2011.
Allscripts is changing that with clinical software, services, information and connectivity solutions that are used by physicians and other healthcare providers to improve the quality of healthcare.
“In the U.S. today, we are sitting on the most vibrant, the most aggressive market in the world and that’s where we wanted to focus our resources,” he says. Currently Allscripts reaches 1 in 3 U.S. doctors and 30% of U.S. hospitals.
Since joining Allscripts in August 1997, Tullman has overseen the company's transition into the healthcare information sector, taken the company public and completed a $1.3 billion merger with Eclipsys Corporation, expanding Allscripts role into the hospital market and doubling the company's size.
Previously, he led Allscripts initial public offering and secondary offerings of the company, driving it to become a leading provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians and others in the healthcare community use in their efforts to improve the quality and reduce the cost of healthcare.
Prior to joining Allscripts, from October 1994 to July 1997, Tullman was chief executive officer of Enterprise Systems, Inc., a leading healthcare information services company providing resource management solutions to large integrated healthcare networks. He led the company's Initial Public Offering and Secondary Offerings. HBO and Company of Atlanta acquired Enterprise in 1997 in a stock transaction valued in excess of $250 million.
