October 2, 2013 — Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare (MLH) will deploy McKesson’s portfolio of enterprise medical imaging products across its facilities to improve physician collaboration, streamline data management and simplify its imaging archive process with a single point of access.

The health system will be able to easily view and analyze medical images and provide diagnostic reports across the enterprise. By implementing McKesson Cardiology, a cardiovascular information system (CVIS), the MLH care team will have complete access to cardiovascular images and reports in real time, including a focus on pediatric cardiology.  With Qualitative Intelligence and Communication Systems (QICS), users will be able to collaborate on critical data with the appropriate workflow, while supporting initiatives.

“By deploying these solutions together, we can improve workflow efficiency for our clinicians and decrease the complexity of our current IT infrastructure,” said Alastair MacGregor, senior vice president and chief healthcare information officer, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare. “In doing so, we expect to reduce our cost of ownership. We also will be able to consolidate information that’s essential for making diagnoses, which will enable our medical and clinical staff to make more informed decisions faster.”

Additionally, MLH will leverage McKesson Study Share a web-based knowledge management system, and McKesson Enterprise Image Repository to help simplify enterprise-wide access to imaging information. Physicians will now have the ability to chat, launch a context-sensitive case for review, agree or disagree on the assessment and immediately go back to their normal workflow from any computer. This will help improve image management and staff collaboration. By reducing the complexity of interfaces across the enterprise, MLH will not only be able to improve decision support, but will also be able to lower the costs associated with interfaces and help decrease the need for future migrations.
