Thread regarding Allscripts layoffs

Good read

If you consider the market, the company is not doing fine. Flat or declining stock value versus large increases at competitors over the past ten years. Maybe they've fixed the debt problem by selling NetSmart, maybe not, those are the noises being made. There's been some biggish wins for the company but theres also significant losses - holding onto the customer base they have with white knuckles at this point. There are some really smart and dedicated people that actually make some pretty neat things. There's also some amazing amounts of disorganization, ignorance, and outright incompetance that balances that out. Some groups are run well, some groups are not, and some aren't even playing with the same rules as everyone else and who knows what they're doing. In terms of tech there's areas where they are far ahead of the buzzword curve and doing really incredible stuff that's way ahead of competitors but there's also bad decisions, old and creaky platforms, slow to adapt to new tech, and some fall on your face tech blunders as well. It's also pretty well established that a lot of the people with experience or knowledge are the ones being removed rather than the people with connections who stay at their level of mediocrity. Can the company be saved? Sure it can, like any other. But don't think its going to happen if they keep blundering around the same way they've been for years now, and just acquiring companies for their clients rather than their technology is not a good long-term strategy as they risk alienating those clients all the time.

I too am very interested to hear about all the "incredible stuff which is so far ahead of the competitors"

Curious how would you even know what competitors are developing, market trends for the future, etc? You sound like a new, young, over zealous employee, new to their position with little experience. That is not a bad thing... just not qualified to back up that statement.

Good read sounds a lot like "it is the best of times and the worst of times". I seriously question the statement "doing really incredible stuff that's way ahead of competitors " Allscripts has NOT put anything out starting today and going back the past 15 years which was maintaining let alone ahead of a curve.

If you could let us know what these advanced industry leading products are that would be nice as well as when everyone could expect the industry to be in shock an awe of this Allscripts brilliance? Having worked here for over 14 years, member of many Health trade mags and groups Allscripts is the complete opposite of that statement.

Avenal is a total bust. Announced 2 years ago, worked on for another 3 years before that. Most if not all development is composed of hacks, some over worked, many under worked. Development is so confused they mistake All code cutoff as ANY code cutoff, support leadership is the most dysfunctional collection of human excrement and services showed what it is made of this past year. The backwash of all flunky leadership who cant be fired but moved into services.

Just the facts mam...

With the great leadership team, MDRX stock is now heading to $5. Time to let them go and bring in new blood.

There’s a great read in SimplyWallSt which confirms what you say. Leadership at Allscripts is overpaid and underperforming. Paul, Rick, and Dennis need to resign. They are doing their employees and shareholders a disservice by staying on board.

Misys "purchased" merged with Allscripts when they realized the c-ap they originally purchased was vaporware. ( complements of Tom S. and Shelly Newman and RD ) Shelly Newman is the most incompetent person I have the unfortunate pleasure of interacting with. He promoted the Uhhhh (A)talent movement which synonymous with his INCOMPENTANCE.. Last seen jaywalking a 7 lane traffic artery during rush hour looking as a beer belly bloated Alzheimers escapee. Sunrise is the only product outside the Medic Products which is worth a dam. RD has ZERO talent.. ZERO direction..

With Love

MR
