Leveraging this partnership brings tremendous value to our solutions portfolio. Using the Azure cloud platform, our clients are positioned for higher levels of cybersecurity, organisational performance and interoperability, as well as overall better patient outcomes. As the Covid-19 pandemic spread across the globe, the Allscripts Sunrise Platform of Health, powered by Microsoft Azure, provided the tools and technology organisations needed to easily transform and optimise efficiencies across the enterprise and beyond. And recovery efforts were aided significantly by this cloud-based technology platform. Further, with the threat of cyberattacks on the rise, the Microsoft Azure infrastructure offers Allscripts clients security controls and advanced threat management systems to drive leading-edge protection against cyberthreats that cause unplanned, disruptive downtime. Together, Allscripts and Microsoft, are helping organisations succeed in the new world of healthcare delivery.” Jennifer MacGregor Senior Vice President of Global Solutions Management at Allscripts “Healthcare services are responsible for finding cures, saving lives and transforming the future of medicine – often on legacy and outdated IT systems. The lack of modernisation exposes healthcare systems to security incidents, putting personal health information at risk. One of our global healthcare service customers wanted to take a cloud-first approach but lacked proper governance and best practice compliance. The customer therefore looked to Logicalis as its trusted partner to modernise whilst reducing security vulnerabilities. Using our Cloud Readiness Assessment, we designed, deployed and migrated the healthcare provider from atrisk servers to the Microsoft-audited Logicalis Production Ready Cloud. The secure migration of business-critical workloads reduces security exposure while enhancing financial results and patient outcomes. Logicalis provides ongoing and extended support to optimise the healthcare provider ’s operations, while offering a stable and scalable place for their workloads to run.” Mick McNeil Vice President of Business Development for Lead Microsoft Business Unit at Logicalis
