  • In this webinar Frank Poggio and Vince Ciotti will provide a detailed analysis of Allscripts' acquisition of McKesson's EIS division: what it means for the 500+ clients on McKesson's various products, alternative vendors they should consider, lessons from past acquisitions in HIS-tory, and how it will impact the overall HIS market today.

    This webiar is geared toward CIOs at McKesson's EIS client facilities and sales reps at competing vendors eager to get them.
    Known for their brutally honest and equally humorous observations, this promises to be an interesting session!
