Allscripts names new CEO to spearhead recovery
Allscripts named its board member and former chief operating officer of rival Cerner Corp Paul Black as its CEO. Black replaces Glen Tullman at the embattled healthcare technology vendor. In November, the firm announced it was evaluating several strategic alternatives, including a possible buyout from a rival.
