Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. MDRX recently announced the relaunch of its former Application Store as the Allscripts App Expo. This rebranding is anticipated to provide Allscripts’ clients an engaging way to identify all applications built and certified through the Allscripts Developer Program (ADP), leveraging Allscripts’ proprietary and Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources Application Programming Interfaces (FHIR APIs) as well as the third-party solutions sold by the company.

Prior to the relaunch, only certain partner applications were searchable and featured on the company’s Application Store. Allscripts will offer all active developers a certified solution and the option to showcase their solutions online via the App Expo as a result of the latest expansion.

The Allscripts App Expo will be showcased at the annual Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference held in Orlando, FL.

More on the News

Allscripts’ developer program allows developers to connect with multiple Allscripts electronic health records (EHR) and practice management solutions. The company supports integration with on-premise, data-center-hosted and cloud-hosted environments throughout all specialties and for all sizes of physician offices and hospital organizations.

Per management, the company has witnessed unprecedented growth in funding for health technology start-ups over the past few years. More organizations are eager to connect to Allscripts solutions through FHIR, the company’s proprietary APIs and other connectivity options available through the Developer Program. The new App Expo marks the latest step in the company’s efforts to make it easier for clients to find solutions that will help them improve their technology ecosystem and accomplish their practice and health system goals.

Industry Prospects

Per a report published in Grand View Research, the global healthcare API market is expected to see a CAGR of 6.3% during 2020-2027. The factors fuelling market growth include the growing uptake of API integrated EHRs, improved patient outcomes and development in the care quality.

Given the market prospects, Allscripts’ decision to rebrand its former Application Store seems well-timed.

Notable Developments

Allscripts engaged in a number of significant developments in March 2022.

The company reached an agreement to sell the net assets of its Hospitals and Large Physician Practices business segment to Constellation Software Inc. (CSU) through the latter’s wholly-owned subsidiary N. Harris Computer Corporation. The transaction is projected to close in the second quarter, subject to fulfillment of regulatory approval and customary closing conditions.

The company’s business unit Veradigm entered into an agreement with the United States Social Security Administration (SSA). This agreement will enable SSA to electronically request and receive electronic health records using the Veradigm Network solution and Veradigm eChart Courier, removing the need to allocate time and resources for manual medical record requests.
