March 23, 2009 – McKesson recently signed a three-year agreement with VHA Inc., a national healthcare alliance committed to helping its members improve their clinical and financial performance, to install the McKesson Performance Analytics product as its enterprise business intelligence solution.
This contract also offers preferential pricing for VHA members, including discounts for more than 1,400 not-for-profit hospitals and 23,000 non-acute care organizations.
The McKesson Performance Analytics software provides hospitals and health systems with a financial decision support system that integrates and transforms data from the clinical care process to measure organizational performance. With the enterprise business intelligence solution in place, hospitals and health systems are no longer bound to departmental analytics reports.
VHA members will be able to analyze costs and revenues, monitor resource use and patient flow, measure nursing care indicators, and evaluate practitioner performance following the implementation of patient safety and error prevention practices. Using personalized, Web-based dashboards, all stakeholders will have access to information from across the enterprise to manage their business with greater efficiency, accuracy and confidence.
