McKesson Gains Top KLAS Ranking for Cardiology Reporting


ATLANTA - McKesson’s Horizon Cardiology™ cardiovascular information solution (CVIS) has received a No. 1 ranking in the Cardiology Reporting 2007 report issued this month by KLAS Enterprises, LLC. McKesson’s fully integrated cardiology solution led its competition in three of four categories: technology, success and business. In addition, McKesson also achieved top overall scores in physician procedural reporting for cardiac catheterization and echocardiography.

“This recent KLAS report validates our strategy to provide a fully integrated, comprehensive solution that preserves and enhances the workflow requirements of today’s cardiologists,” said Rod O’Reilly, vice president and general manager of McKesson’s Medical Imaging Group. “Horizon Cardiology directly addresses the market evolution from isolated image and information solutions to a single, fully integrated cardiovascular solution that pulls together patient demographics, hemodynamic waveforms, cardiac images and procedural information into one complete cardiac patient record. McKesson is thrilled to be recognized by our customers as an industry leader in the cardiovascular market.”

According to O’Reilly, McKesson has seen growing demand for its Horizon Cardiology reporting packages among acute care facilities. The solution’s singular infrastructure addresses the physicians’ needs to manage exponential growth in images and information as they seek to quickly and efficiently finalize reports, either from a local or remote location.
