Three community hospitals select McKesson solutions

May 29, 2010

ATLANTA – May 24, 2010 – McKesson today announced that three more community hospitals have chosen the company’s Practice Partner Patient Records electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solution for their employed/affiliated physicians. The hospitals, which also selected the Paragon hospital information system (HIS) to automate care processes in their inpatient settings, aim to enhance communication and care coordination among healthcare providers in their communities. The new practices implementing the solution will join more than 100,000 physicians already using McKesson physician solutions nationwide.

The latest hospitals to contract for the solutions include Davis County Hospital, located in Bloomfield, Iowa; Paynesville Area Hospital, located in Paynesville, Minn.; and Renville County Hospital and Clinics, located in Olivia, Minn.

Through tight integration, McKesson’s Paragon HIS and Practice Partner EHR/practice management system offer a winning combination for communities looking to take the next step in care collaboration by connecting the inpatient and ambulatory settings. In the Practice Partner EHR, Bright Note Technology automatically populates critical data on a patient chart. This enables physicians and other providers to use their preferred charting style to capture data in a single screen note and synchronize searchable data across the complete chart. The Practice Partner solution is part of McKesson’s full suite of solutions designed to help physicians improve patient care. McKesson’s offerings also include business management and revenue management systems, connectivity platforms for health information exchange, and medical-surgical equipment and supplies.

Paragon is specifically designed to address the unique needs of a community hospital. The HIS integrates critical financial and clinical solutions on a single platform. Those benefits translate into reduced training time for staff, enhanced data management and ease of deployment.
