Physician software vendor Allscripts has several new features and enhancements in version 9.0 of its Allscripts Professional EHR for small- and medium-sized practices. The Chicago-based vendor's Allscripts Remote software also now is compatible with BlackBerry smart phones.

The updated EHR includes a custom guideline builder that enables clinicians to select which clinical measures should be highlighted during a patient visit. The EHR, for instance, could display an on-screen alert if a patient exceeds American Diabetes Association standards for blood glucose levels. The software includes built-in common national guidelines.

Another new feature is a physician dashboard that highlights a patient's care management plan, providing graphing of key measures as blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
