Allscripts CEO Glen Tullman, who joined the company 1997 and recently appeared to emerge victorious after a boardroom brouhaha, has stepped down. Company president Lee Shapiro will also step down.
Tullman and Shapiro will be replaced by Paul Black, who assumes both positions. Shapiro will serve as a consultant to Black for up to six months, according to the company.
Black is the former COO of Cerner, and is currently an Allscripts board member. In addition, Black has served on the board of The Truman Medical Centers for 12 years, most recently as chairman, and as a director of Haemonetics Corporation.
The company also announced that it is no longer for sale. Dennis Chookaszian, Allscripts chairman of the board, stated that after a strategic review, “The board concluded … that the best course at this time is to develop Allscripts’ long-term potential under the direction of our new management team.”
