The 10-year agreement will provide a complete integrated clinical and financial platform that includes Allscripts Sunrise EHR, Sunrise Financial Manager, dbMotion Solution, and Allscripts EPSi. These services will be used by Heritage Valley’s physician practices, outpatient facilities and three hospitals that include Heritage Valley Sewickley, Heritage Valley Beaver and its new facility, Ohio Valley Hospital.
