|Item 7.01.||Regulation FD Disclosure.|
Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (Allscripts) is providing this update in response to certain inaccurate information introduced into the market on March 7, 2018, regarding Allscripts business in Singapore.
The Singapore Ministry of Health and Integrated Health Information System (IHIS) recently conducted a solicitation to implement a country-wide, single EMR vendor solution. Allscripts participated in the solicitation. After a more than 18-month review, IHISs decision at this time is not to adopt a single country-wide EMR. Instead, the current go-forward strategy will be for Singapore to focus on two EMR solutions across Singapores healthcare clusters.
This decision means that Allscripts retains the entirety of its current Sunrise client base in Singapore, including the Ministry of Defense, Singapore Health Services, Parkway Health and Mt. Alvernia Hospital Groups a share that represents roughly 54% of the countrys public and approximately 70% of the countrys private hospital beds. Allscripts will also expand its footprint later in 2018, implementing Allscripts Sunrise at the 1,400-bed SengKang General and Community Hospitals system.
Allscripts clients in Singapore are committed to advancing their partnerships with Allscripts, and Allscripts will continue to deliver recognizable value through its suite of solutions. Allscripts is honored by its clients trust and is committed to helping them achieve their vision to deliver smarter health care.
This report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including with respect to future operations and activities in Singapore. These forward-looking statements are based on the current beliefs and expectations of Allscripts management, only speak as of the date that they are made, and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. Such statements can be identified by the use of words such as future, anticipates, believes, estimates, expects, intends, plans, predicts, will, and would, and similar terms. Actual results could differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
