Area of Interest
One of the most discussed topics among hospital leaders today is accountable care. It is a concept for organizing and delivering healthcare that strives for better access, outcomes, patient experiences and lower costs. This encourages providers, payers and patients to work together for preventive healthcare and risk management of high-cost prevalent disease states.
At McKesson, we are helping hospitals nationwide with solutions that support these new care-delivery and payment models. We work side-by-side with our customers to help decreases costs, find new sources of pharmacy revenue and save valuable pharmacist time. Our goal is to help pharmacists get closer to the clinical work and medication management that can impact patient outcomes. Our integrated technologies and processes can help improve efficiency, manage population health and extend the continuum of care. We’re ready to help you succeed in the new world of accountable care.
