Allscripts re-certifies OBERD for Touchworks® EHR Integration

Posted on: 25 Oct 16

COLUMBIA, Mo., Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Allscripts has announced that Universal Research Solutions (a.k.a. OBERD) has received re-certification for Allscripts Touchworks® EHR, an award-winning electronic health record and practice management solution.

OBERD will use the re-certification to integrate its patient outcomes data collection systems with the newest Touchworks® versions. The integration will enable OBERD to expand the capabilities of current Allscripts interfaces. Of noted importance, the expansion will ensure interface stability with new Unity versions through the use of automated testing with Allscripts Magic Tester.

"Our integration with Allscripts allows us to quickly and painlessly integrate OBERD data discretely into the Touchworks EHR while eliminating the need for costly interfaces to document patient reported health data," says Matt Allen, OBERD Chief Information Officer.

OBERD expects integration with new Touchworks® versions to begin immediately.
