High Point Regional Health System has selected Atlanta-based McKesson to provide a variety of information technology services for service and patient care.
Among the new services are medical imaging and a web-based portal for physicians to provide mobile access to patient information. Diagnostic images, test results, medication orders and patient vital sign information will all be available online.
“Equipping physicians and other clinicians with sophisticated IT tools is essential to clinical excellence and helping our patients achieve the best possible health outcomes,” said Eugene Roth, High Point’s chief information officer. “Information technology is the glue that will enable us to provide greater continuity of care for the patients and communities we serve. McKesson has been a strong partner over the past 20 years, and we look forward to the added benefit that these new solutions can provide.”
