July 20, 2009 – St. Joseph Medical Center has selected McKesson’s Revenue Management Solutions (RMS) group to manage its medical billing processes to streamline operational and revenue challenges.
The Reading, Penn. physicians will deploy McKesson Practice Complete, a bundled solution, which provides RMS services including patient billing, accounts receivable management and reporting, along with Horizon Practice Plus practice management software and RelayHealth payor connectivity services.
With this announcement, St. Joseph joins eight Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) practices, representing more than 250 physicians, currently relying on McKesson RMS to manage revenue management services. As a result, St. Joseph expects to benefit from sharing a common platform for collecting and interpreting financial data with other CHI organizations.
St. Joseph Medical Center also plans to use McKesson’s reporting capabilities to enable managers at both the local and corporate level to use data obtained from patient encounters to develop benchmarks for practice performance.
