Allscripts offers buyouts to employees

Allscripts, the Chicago-based electronic health record (EHR) company, has confirmed it is offering buyouts to employees, according to reporting from POLITICO.

Allscripts acquired Practice Fusion and portions of McKesson and NantHealth in the past year, so the buyouts could be part of an adjustment as new assets are settled. The company reported profitability over the last year, but interest rates evenly matched revenue growth.

According to Morning eHealth, former employees report the buyouts are widespread.

"As Allscripts continually looks to balance resources across the company to ensure we are best supporting clients, and as the company continues to realize expected synergies resulting from our recent acquisitions, Allscripts offered a Voluntary Early Retirement Program (VERP) to a limited number of eligible U.S.-based associates," a company spokeswoman said. Some of the “eligible associates have opted to take advantage of the offer."
