Few Words on TouchWorks EHR

TouchWorks EHR is a renowned EHR platform for large, multi-specialty practices, management services organization platforms as well as academic and independent delivery networks. This EHR can benefit ambulatory practices, including teaching and research-oriented practices, by providing improved patient care and better facilitation of population health initiatives.

Industry Prospects

Per a report published in MarketsandMarkets, the global clinical workflow solutions market is expected to see a CAGR of 14.8% during 2020-2025. Factors such as government initiatives promoting the adoption of Healthcare Information Technology (HCIT) solutions, several benefits associated with clinical workflow solutions in terms of enhancing patient care and safety, increasing patient volume due to the COVID-19 pandemic, greater adoption of EHRs and other HCIT solutions, and the growing need to curb healthcare costs are driving the market.

Given the substantial market prospects, the recent adoption of Allscripts’ EHR platform and Microsoft Azure hosting & services by Next level Urgent Care seems well-timed.
