The future is connected.
With Better Health 2020, McKesson is focused on differentiated healthcare IT solutions that connect and coordinate care.
From a patient's perspective, navigating service in today's healthcare system can be challenging. More than two-thirds of patients report difficulty getting timely access to their doctor. Thirty percent of the time, test results or medical records aren't available at the time of an appointment when a patient is seeing three or more physicians1.
To create a more connected, patient-centered ecosystem, as an industry, we must enable hospital-to-physician connectivity, physician-to-physician networking, provider-patient interaction, and ultimately a full continuum of care that's both clinically and financially connected.
Health systems should be able to rely on local and state health information exchanges in order to interoperate with community labs, retail pharmacies, payers and nearby health systems. You should also be able to follow the information needs of patients by connecting to national databases, federal registries, consumer personal health records (PHRs), and other health systems across the country.
