Jim Cramer: We recommended a stock called Allscripts July first. It then rallied twenty seven percent, so we said take you’re money off the table. Why did we like Allscripts? Because Allscripts is the kind of play that actually cuts the cost of healthcare, something that we know that Senator Barack Obama is for. Hard to believe that Senator John McCain is against it, frankly. And the Medicare bill had certain incentives for e-prescribing systems. The best e-prescribing system in the world is from Allscripts, which is why we want to bring on Allscripts Healthcare Solutions Chairman and CEO Glen Tullman. Mr. Tullman, welcome to Mad Money.

Glen Tullman: Well thanks very much, and thank you for the endorsement

Cramer: Well if the government, I think, endorses the idea of good, clean prescriptions. Can you give us a little view on where you think ultimately Medicare shakes out for you, and keep in mind I know you did an acquisition so try to let us figure out, if we own this stock through September, what it means for us.

Tullman: Okay, well first of all let me talk about this landmark legislation because what really happened is for the first time in history the government is actually going to pay physicians to use our software to electronically prescribe. That’s never happened before and this could be as much as $3,000 per physician in terms of using our software. In addition, in the next few years they will begin to penalize physicians if they don’t e-prescribe. So you can’t ask for a better endorsement than the government actually pushing your product.

Cramer: Can you give us an update on the Allscripts-Misys transaction? It’s supposed to close in late September. It looks like there’s a special cash dividend coming.

Tullman: Well there is. But first let me give you an update. The SEC cleared the proxy and the proxy has been mailed, and we’re very hopeful to close, we have a shareholder’s meeting scheduled. And there will be a special cash dividend paid, roughly around five dollars, for all the shareholders of record. So we’re excited about that. But we’re more excited about what this merger offers. Because it’s going to give us a footprint of one out of every three physicians in the United States, and that’s a great base to work from.

Cramer: You were currently around twenty-five percent, so you pick up some nice market share, right?

Tullman: We do, we pick up substantial market share, and not only in the high end, which is where Allscripts has been so successful, but also in the less than ten space, which is where roughly fifty percent of all the physicians in the United States reside.

Cramer: Mr. Tullman, one of the things I know that I’m going to get questions on, and I know you want to talk about the big picture, which is absolutely right, but when you pay a special dividend like that, people are going to say the stock went down a lot that day. Can you just, for the benefit of our viewers who are in the stock, the little mechanics that occur when you do that?

Tullman: Well, I think the mechanics are pretty simple, and that is that you’re paying a special cash dividend to Allscripts shareholders, and at that point in some cases you see a downdraft, which takes account of the investors who are currently holding the stock just for the dividend. We see that frankly as a buying opportunity if you believe in the long-term premise. And the long-term premise of Allscripts has always been using technology to improve the quality and reduce the cost of health care. And we think you don’t have to be a brain surgeon, even though we have a lot of them as clients, to actually understand that value proposition — using technology to improve a business process.



Cramer: Mr. Tullman this has been yours all the way, right? You’ve been here for over 11 years to push this concept, right?

Tullman: 11 years and it’s great to see it happening the way it’s happening today.

Cramer: Well thank you for persevering for all the people I know who bought the stock. I wanted to take the trade but I think there’s a big investment going on here, too. Thank you Glen Tullman, Allscripts’ Chairman and CEO.

Tullman: Thank you.

Cramer: Well guys, this is a good story. Yeah, you know, the market’s so bad that I felt take some off the table. But you know he’s right and if the stock gets dinged after the dividend, we’re going to come right back and re-recommended the story. Please you come right back after the break.
