McKesson continues to gain momentum with its Practice Partner electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solution as new physician practices join more than 100,000 physicians already using McKesson EHR solutions nationwide. The latest practices to contract for the solution include:
- Consultants in Gastroenterology, located in Providence, R.I., chose the Practice Partner solution for its new Bright Note Technology, which automatically populates critical data on a patient chart. This dynamic processing technology enables physicians and other providers to use their preferred charting style to capture data in a single screen note and, with one touch, synchronize searchable data across the complete chart.
- Virginia Nephrology Group, a multi-location group in northern Virginia, recently contracted for McKesson’s complete Practice Partner suite including EHRs, billing and scheduling software. Virginia Nephrology was referred to McKesson from a local hospital whose employed physicians already are successfully using the Practice Partner system.
- Paradigm Medical Group is located in Colorado Springs, Colo. The group has purchased McKesson’s Practice Partner Patient Records EHR and Appointment Scheduler to integrate with its existing practice management system. Paradigm selected the Practice Partner EHR as part of its strategy to qualify for government incentives outlined in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Practice Partner is part of McKesson’s comprehensive portfolio of physician solutions designed to reduce time spent on administrative tasks and help to meet the needs of running a modern practice. As the source for solutions that improve practice performance, McKesson’s offering includes clinical and EHR software as well as business management and revenue management solutions.
