Thread regarding Allscripts layoffs

Nothing can be done to save Allscripts

I worked in HIT in the Raleigh area for +20 years,
and left several years ago, when I got offered severance.
It was a no brainier, take the severance and exit the business.
Since that time, most of the people that I worked with,
have also left, and right now I would estimate that only
3% of the people that I worked with during my time there
are left, and I was told that they are holding on for severance.
IMHO, nothing can be done to save Allscripts.
They cut their own throats back in 2010,
when they merged with Eclipsys, and started to move
support over to Pune.
It has taken this long, for what many at that time believed
would eventually happen. Allscripts would loose clients
because of non-US based support,
and not having a viable suite of products to compete with
the 2 main companies in HIT, Epic and Cerner.
They could sell off some of their acquisitions,
which would do nothing but prolong the inevitable.
Good luck to all the hard working folks that are still there,
that they get out, before the end there arrives.

Agreed. Sales fantasy forecasts and poor leadership are at the top. Customer mismanagement is a good choice too.

That was 9 years ago. Lots of reasons they are not making loads of cash... but support in Pune is pretty far down the list.
