Allscripts and US Orthopedic Alliance Expand Strategic Partnership, Ushering in ‘The Gold Standard’ For Orthopedic Technology Platforms
CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Allscripts Healthcare Solutions (NASDAQ: MDRX) today announced a strategic technology partnership with US Orthopedic Alliance (USOA), an orthopedic management services provider based in Southern California, to support USOA’s growth and pursue additional relationships with leading orthopedic providers nationwide. The partnership will bring to market best-of-breed infrastructure designed to help orthopedic practices scale with agility, improve EHR implementation timelines, provide evidence-based guidelines to support evolving clinical protocols, and create community-wide connectivity with value-based care analytics.

USOA currently provides industry-leading management services to a network of more than 100 orthopedic surgeons, 12 ambulatory surgery centers and one specialty hospital. Physician members benefit from USOA’s superior business intelligence solutions, including revenue cycle management, contracting, risk management, and value-based care services such as infrastructure, technology, and data analytics.
“USOA has rapidly grown its market position by providing orthopedic practices with specialty-specific services to manage and grow their practice while enhancing the patient experience,” said Rick Salas, chief executive officer of USOA. “Our network has been asking about USOA’s ability to deliver an open, unifying and enabling technology platform to support independent orthopedic practices.
