Allscripts, a public traded American company for hospitals, and healthcare providers have partnered with a comprehensive, integrated health care delivery system, Ephraim McDowell Health to drive its enterprise and mobile patient engagement platform. Allscripts provides a mobile, enterprise patient/consumer engagement platform for providers, hospitals and health systems to those who want to foster healthy patient populations and manage quality. Its portal FollowMyHealth’s total connected patients hit more than 17 million last year alone.

Allscripts’ Senior Vice President Raj Toleti said that Innovative providers across the United States are realizing that FollowMyHealth offers the most comprehensive and integrated enterprise and mobile patient engagement platform on the market.
