Eclipsys Corporation was a publicly traded American company that provided hospitals and other healthcare organizations with electronic medical record, computerized physician order entry, and other technology, as well as revenue cycle management software. Eclipsys was founded in 1995, and had its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.


Eclipsys was founded in 1995 by Harvey J. Wilson who remained with the company until 2002. In 1998, the company acquired Motorola's Emtek Healthcare Division,[1] a provider of point-of-care clinical information software.[2] In 2008, the company acquired physician practice management software company MediNotes.[3] The company restructured in 2006, and Philip Pead became chief executive officer in 2009.[4] In 2010, Eclipsys announced a strategic partnership with Microsoft, in which the companies will share technology and promote healthcare information technology interoperability.[5] Eclipsys merged with Allscripts in August 2010.[6]
