McKesson Releases Physician Practice EHR Solutions

October 13, 2009 – Bright Note Technology, which is said to instantly populate all critical data on a patient chart, is now available across the entire spectrum of McKesson’s ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) solutions for physician practices.

This processing technology is designed to enable physicians and other providers to use their preferred charting style to capture data in a single screen note and, with one touch, synchronize searchable data across a complete chart. The approach gives physicians quick access to vital patient information, allowing them to focus more attention on patient interaction.

“As physicians begin to fully digest the magnitude of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the ability to quickly access and document patient information and generate critical data is expected
to be essential to clinical reporting and, ultimately, their ability to apply for incentive payments,” said David Henriksen, senior vice president and general manager of McKesson’s Physician Practice Solutions. “Bright Note Technology intuitively works the way the physicians already work, reducing practice disruption and training time and driving enhanced care quality and improved physician profitability in less time.”

Physicians can choose from a variety of input methods including speech recognition, templates, keyboard entry and transcription. For those who prefer to input verbally, advanced speech recognition software with built-in dot codes enables the physician to quickly enter and synchronize patient data. Other physicians may prefer to use templates entered into a digital tablet or personal computer, with drop-down menus and the ability to point and click. For those who choose to enter the information on a keyboard, the new technology reduces keystrokes and eliminates redundancies. Even physicians who prefer dictating live with a recorder or using handwritten notes experience increased ease-of-use with the new technology.

Bright Note Technology will be available in McKesson’s physician practice EHR solutions including Practice Partner, Lytec MD and Medisoft Clinical. Practice Partner is an award-winning electronic health record and practice management solution. It delivers an integrated system that empowers physicians to improve the quality of care and increase bottom line productivity. Practice Partner Patient Records Version 9.3 is a CCHIT Certified product for CCHIT Ambulatory EHR 2008 and Child Health.
