Chesapeake Hospital Implements McKesson’s EMR, Revenue Management Solution

May 27, 2009 – The Chesapeake Hospital Authority has selected McKesson to implement a fully integrated clinical and revenue management information technology system throughout Chesapeake Regional Medical Center, providing hospital with a comprehensive electronic medical record, an automated medication management process and integrated revenue management capabilities.
The McKesson solutions being implemented are specifically designed to address the needs of a community hospital setting. An electronic documentation system will allow caregivers to efficiently review patient status and then document clinical assessments and findings. That information then becomes part of the integrated patient record, enabling clinicians across multiple disciplines to communicate, document, evaluate and coordinate each patient’s progress. Point-of-care applications, such as bar-code medication administration and computerized provider order entry, will help ensure that physicians and nurses have the tools they need to provide the safest care possible. And McKesson’s document management solution will enable physicians to access, review and complete patient charts online, while also streamlining the billing process.
Chesapeake also will implement McKesson’s new revenue management solution to automate operational and financial processes. Tasks that were typically performed after discharge will now be completed at the beginning of the patient pre-registration process, which should streamline patient interactions with the hospital while dramatically improving staff efficiency and productivity.
