Glen Tullman, Phil Pead Discuss Merger, Opportunities

Take Team-Member Input at Town Halls Across the Company

CEO Glen Tullman and Eclipsys CEO and President Phil Pead, took the merger story to team members last week in a series of Town Hall, manager and small-group meetings spanning Atlanta, Raleigh, Burlington and Chicago. These meetings are part of our ongoing communications plan to reach out to the team and answer top-of-mind questions. You can expect that we will cover our other offices as well as all of our remote people over the coming weeks and months.

At all of the meetings, the two introduced themselves as friends having known and worked together in the past. The nature of their relationship was reinforced by the back-and-forth of jokes and good-natured barbs. While both executives stressed the importance of having fun at work, they also took the time to deliver some very important messages about the merger and the incredible opportunity ahead for the combined company.

Glen thanked employees for their part in the proposed merger’s success. “It couldn’t have happened without all of you. Thanks for your efforts.”

Glen set the stage for opportunity by providing context for the current state of the industry outlining the problems plaguing it — including high-cost, low quality and no connectivity. “Whereas in the past, we had paper silos, now we have electronic silos.” He pointed out that the merger with Eclipsys would help address these problems and ultimately create an end-to-end connected system of health.

Unlike typical mergers that take place to shore-up two struggling companies, Glen pointed out that this merger is being driven from a position of strength. “These are two growth companies that came together not because they had to, but because they recognized the opportunity to address health-care problems, move the industry forward and better serve its clients and constituencies.”

Reinforcing Eclipsys success, Glen mentioned some of Eclipsys’ achievements including:


Being recognized by research firms as the leader in CPOE [Computerized Physician Order Entry] for the past seven years.


Having an installed base in 18 of the top 21 hospitals ranked by U.S. News and World Report in their annual ranking of the nation’s best hospitals.


And, being represented in one-out-of-three hospitals in the country that have 200+ beds.

For his part, Phil talked about the need to keep the entrepreneurial culture alive as the companies merge and to look at the products from a client/user perspective much the same way that Apple runs its business.

“One thing that we do at Eclipsys is have our developers do ‘roundings’ with physicians and inside the ER,” he said. “I want them to experience the stress of the ER and see how our products are used in real-life situations. For example, if it takes 12 clicks to enter information, that’s just not acceptable.”

Phil made the point that one CEO of the combined company is enough and that Glen would be the CEO. That said, he noted that Glen has asked him to stay on and play an important operating role. In addition to being Chairman of the combined company, Phil said he would continue in a full-time capacity to help the company in four key areas:


  1) Operational integration
  2) Product integrity
  3) International growth strategy
  4) Client relationships/Partnerships

In addition, to the Town Halls, a number of manager and small-group meetings were held earlier in the week in Raleigh and Burlington. Overall, managers said they wanted more information on bonuses and compensation plans and more context and communications with respect to fulfilling hiring requisitions.

Diane Adams, executive vice president for Culture and Talent, said that the Performance Management Process would kick-off this week with training for all managers. Shortly thereafter, managers would be in a position to discuss total compensation with their employees and communicate rewards.

Glen said that despite the slumping economy, Allscripts is committed to rewarding its people for performance. “While other companies may be looking at scaling back on rewards, “We will continue to invest in our best people.”

Glen offered participants in one of the managers’ sessions the opportunity to “report back” to him in the next 30 days as to whether they are seeing improvements in the areas discussed.

The meetings concluded on a high note, with a commitment to increase communication across a number of areas including the merger, HR, and overall strategy.
