Thread regarding Allscripts layoffs

How is it looking for this year?

Any ideas on when we can expect more layoffs at Allscripts in 2019?

I'm guessing this year will be as bad or even worse than the previous one.

The Allscripts cabinet and Mr. Black must go!

They all lost track at year 3 1/2 with NanthHealth quick buy with no research and and the final bow is buying a failed McKesson business unit for pennies on the dollar; then letting the people who failed at McKesson, destroy what was left of AllScripts. It took less than a year. They are now cutting the technology life blood and the employees who actually care about HIT from their organization. Failure is imminent; trust me.

People are leaving on their own now, so expect a steady trickle of that to continue for a long time. Management, at least the three or four "E" and "S" level VPs I heard talking about it after the last purge, pretty much indicated that there were going to be some "big changes" coming in Q1. There's also still some redundancy in roles between different groups of acquisition hires, plus some holes in the regional teams so I think they're going to plug those holes with "extra" resources and then get rid of any excess. I think there will be another round of heads rolling in February or March personally, and don't expect any changes in the upper three tiers of management unless they leave willingly. It may not be as bad as the July and December purges but I still think it's going to be significant.

It is not like any of this is unexpected given the very long history of layoffs from this company and all of the predecessor components of it. This goes on every few years regardless of anything else, just like many companies experience. There's waves of "cost cutting", "re-organization", then they realize they have more chiefs than Indians (pun intended) and purge the middle management ranks, then "re-organize" again, then hire new people including more middle management layers, and the cycle begins anew.

Prognosis grim, very grim. We still have large client turnover. Rip and replace is the environment. Sales are way off and no sign of trending upward. core leadership through out the company has not changed. Have trust our leadership will find portion of the company to sell and hide behind or the netsmart sale will carry over to cover their embarrassing numbers. Just a hunch. We need to get out as soon as possible. This is the year.

Hints logically lean towards a bleak future for many. Read beteeen the lines.
