CHICAGO, Aug. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the second quarter of 2016, Wyckoff Heights Medical Center expanded its relationship with Allscripts (NASDAQ:MDRX) by selecting the Sunrise solution to replace its legacy electronic health record (EHR) and provide an integrated patient record and support revenue cycle management.
