Better Health Starts with Tony

Keeping the business of healthcare moving

Our distribution excellence, software, automation technology and business services help address the challenges healthcare organizations face today — and shape how they’ll overcome the new challenges of tomorrow. We’re connecting people and organizations and are committed to higher quality and improved clinical outcomes. And that helps to drive better patient health.


McKesson public policy: our unique perspective

McKesson understands that the decisions made by policymakers have a profound impact on our industry. With businesses and customers that span all settings of healthcare, McKesson has a 360-degree view of the healthcare system. We are actively engaged in numerous public policy issues that impact our operations as well as those of our customers, including physician groups, pharmacies, hospitals, manufacturers, homecare agencies, insurers and long-term care providers.

Looking ahead to the future

To achieve better business health today, you need a business partner who can bring you proven solutions to help drive down cost, improve quality, and produce superior outcomes across your health system. But to maintain business health and be prepared for the uncertain future, you need more than that. You need a business partner who will invest in new solutions to tackle the tough challenges that lie ahead.

McKesson’s commitment to empowering its customers to more strategically use IT solutions is reflected in our Better Health 2020™ strategy. Through a broad suite of IT capabilities, Better Health 2020 helps support organizations as they address complex challenges, including the need to reduce costs, coordinate care, assume more risk and manage complex payment models. McKesson is a founding member of the CommonWell Alliance, a not-for-profit organization that will support universal access to health data through seamless interoperability.
