Allscripts is a leader in the healthcare information industry with a huge footprint in the U.S. This partnership, along with the unique ecosystem of Ben-Gurion University, its medical school, and collaborations with hospitals, positions CDI as a new innovation center forming a new paradigm,” says Ziv Ofek, CDI’s chief executive officer.
