Allscripts, Northwell Health to build voice-enabled EHR

Northwell Health and Allscripts have teamed up to develop and deploy a cloud-based, voice-enabled EHR across the New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based health system.

The new EHR will leverage artificial intelligence and will be designed by Northwell clinicians, information technology professionals and administrators.

"Coupling Allscripts' technology expertise with Northwell's clinical and operational strengths will enable us to create a dynamic, patient-facing tool that will arm clinicians with knowledge to provide exceptional care to our patients," said Michael Dowling, president and CEO at Northwell, according to the news release.

While Allscripts and Northwell create the new system and roll out a pilot program, the health system will continue to use Allscripts' Sunrise EHR platform. Sunrise is currently used at 19 Northwell hospitals and at more than 750 Northwell outpatient practices in New York.

Northwell has been using Allscripts' EHR since 2009.
