The Chicago-based company announced hiring plans on Wednesday at its office in Raleigh, one of Allscripts' top three locations along with its headquarters and Atlanta.
Gov. Pat McCrory said the new jobs will be added over the next five years for expanded research and development.
Allscripts develops and sells software for doctors and hospitals that handle electronic medical records, digital patient prescriptions, and medical practice management.
Allscripts and its competitors have been on a growth spurt since the 2009 federal stimulus package included up to $30 billion in subsidies for the nation's doctors to cut medical costs by switching from using paper records to electronic records.
