McKesson Corporation: Best Healthcare Technology Solutions North America 2016

McKesson Corporation distributes pharmaceuticals at retail level and provides health information technology, medical supplies, and care management tools to the healthcare industry.

As the fourth largest pharmaceutical chain in the world, the company serves more than 50% of American hospitals, 20% of US physicians, and 96% of the top 25 health plans. It delivers one-third of all medication used in North America.

However, what sets McKesson apart is the quality of its technology solutions and its extensive network infrastructure, providing interactive connectivity solutions streamlining clinical, financial, and administrative communications. It has made a name for itself as an early adopter of new technology, introducing bar-code scanning for distribution, pharmacy robotics, and RFID tags ahead of others.

The company’s technology solutions aid every angle of the healthcare industry and are designed to drive clinical and business intelligence into every healthcare decision, improving healthcare efficiency, reducing cost, optimising revenue streams, and enhancing patient safety. From diagnostic imaging to healthcare analytics and financial optimisation, McKesson provides software solutions, services, and consulting to hospitals, physician offices, imaging centres, home healthcare agencies, and payers, alike.

McKesson is not only America’s oldest and largest healthcare company, but it continues to play an integral role in the future of the industry. The company is firmly rooted in modernity, and as such, the judging panel deservingly extends McKesson the 2016 Best Healthcare Technology Solutions North America Award.
