McKesson Announces McKesson Cardiology 13.0
McKesson announced the release of McKesson Cardiology 13.0, a single database solution for cardiac and peripheral catheterization, hemodynamics monitoring, electrophysiology (EP), echocardiography, vascular ultrasound, nuclear cardiology and ECG/stress/holter management. In the October 2011 KLAS Cardiology 2011 report, providers ranked the McKesson cardiology solution to be the most complete solution in the study. The latest release adds EP, stress, holter and inventory management modules. With McKesson Cardiology 13.0, data entered at any point of care flows into the electronic health record (EHR) without cumbersome interfaces or redundant documentation. Tightly integrated with the McKesson Point of Use Supply, this version also provides documentation, billing and management for inventory in the cardiovascular department. With a single barcode scan into McKesson Cardiology, for example, the system will automatically update clinical documentation, generate charges, adjust stock levels and electronically send orders to the hospital materials management system. All data—from pre-procedure and intra-procedure information to physician reporting to American College of Cardiology’s National Cardiac Data Registry (NCDR)—is integrated and immediately available to physicians to review or share with other caregivers.
