Nyack Selects McKesson for EHR Technology

June 24, 2009 – Nyack Hospital has chosen McKesson’s Paragon technology for community hospitals, enabling the use of comprehensive electronic health records (EHRs) and financial management systems throughout its 375-bed facility in Rockland County, N.Y.
The Paragon solution is said to offer an affordable and contemporary integrated financial and clinical solution. An electronic system will enhance Nyack Hospital’s charting and billing process by providing its care team with immediate anytime, anywhere access to up-to-date patient information. Point-of-care applications such as bar-code medication scanning and patient care documentation are designed to help ensure that the care team will be equipped to provide the safest, most effective care possible.
Administrators at Nyack Hospital expect that the use of EHRs will serve as a recruitment tool for physicians, nurses and other clinicians in a highly competitive market that includes 32 hospitals within a 20-mile radius.
In addition, Paragon gives the hospital a highly integrated and efficient single-vendor solution for all of its revenue cycle and financial management needs, including billing, claims submission, accounts receivable management and electronic remittance posting. Electronic documentation also facilitates HIPAA and regulatory compliance.
