Allscripts Healthcare ends NYC Health & Hospitals suit

Bloomberg News, March 26, 2013
Allscripts Healthcare Solutions Inc. (MDRX), a provider of electronic medical records, dropped a lawsuit against New York City Health & Hospitals Corp. over a $303 million contract given to another company. Allscripts, based in Chicago, sued in New York state Supreme Court in Manhattan in December over a contract for computer hardware and software awarded last year to Epic Systems Corp., a closely held medical-software provider based in Verona, Wisconsin. The company has discontinued the suit and "looks forward to having the opportunity to work with HHC on other matters in the future," Allscripts said in an e-mailed statement.
