McKesson Horizon | Which Way Now?

McKesson Horizon Series

Part 1 - Time & Contract

It’s not a good feeling. As the CIO of multi-faceted health system that is currently using McKesson’s HORIZON© suite of applications throughout your system, you’re now faced with a decision, a myriad of decisions actually.

Epic Implementation | Flexibility & Accountability

The Epic Implementation Series

But when you’re an organization that is planning to roll out Epic across multiple inpatient sites, their associate clinics, in house physicians groups, including revenue cycle management, you have likely discovered an entirely new set of roadblocks that could inhibit your successful, on-time installation.
