Reports that Allscripts (MDRX +14.2%) is exploring a sale should not come as a big shock considering the calls earlier this year from major shareholder HealthCor for MDRX to put itself on the block. HealthCor has since seen three of its own nominees added to the board, which would help push the case to sell. Other medical records firms also move up: QSII +3.9%, CERN +3.9%.
