Silver Lake Management has also taken part in the first bidding round according to Bloomberg, which said the company was looking to be taken private following a board shakeup and legal fight with its second-biggest shareholder.
It said second-round offers were expected within three to four weeks.
Allscripts recently lost a $302m contract to supply its technology to New York City’s public hospitals.
At the other end of the scale, US private equity firm Bluff Point Associates agreed a two-stage $12m financing deal for electronic medical record company DocuTap earlier this year.
The company provides practice management solutions specifically designed for urgent care providers by optimising patient appointment times, the efficiency of doctors and accurate billing.
