McKesson Integrates Mobile Technology And Practice Management With New Application

McKesson Corporation recently announced the launch of Medisoft Mobile, a no-fee application for the iPad and iPhone that’s now available for download from the Apple App Store. Designed for use on the newly-released Medisoft V18, Medisoft Mobile offers a seamless integration of mobile computing technology and practice management systems, delivering the flexibility and accessibility today’s providers want.

According to a Manhattan Research study, physician adoption of tablets for professional purposes doubled between 2011 and 2012, with half using them at the point-of-care. The rapid adoption of devices among providers is driving demand for applications that can help streamline patient encounters and enhance quality of care.

“We implemented the new mobile application for one of our billing clients and it has reduced the time to enter charges by over 60 percent,” said Cheryl Gerlitz, owner, MD Solutions. “This allows us to focus on working the accounts receivable rather than charge entry.  The doctor and his staff are excited because they don’t have to track down missing encounter forms because of this application.”

The combined functionality of Medisoft Mobile and Medisoft v18 allows providers to use their phones or tablets to view their schedules and to transmit charges, diagnosis codes and notes to the front desk or biller. The electronic capture of charges and diagnoses also eliminates the need for paper superbills, helping streamline documentation and reducing the chance for data-entry errors.

“Like most small practices, our Medisoft customers are facing the challenge of reduced Medicare reimbursements and need new ways to gain efficiencies and enhance revenue generation,” said David Henriksen, senior vice president, McKesson Physician Practice Solutions. “By improving accessibility and optimizing data capture, Medisoft Mobile can help them do just that. Our customers are excited about the potential of mobile in their practices, and we’re happy to be able to offer this solution to them.”

With Medisoft Mobile, McKesson continues its commitment to enhancing the vitality of small, independent practices. For more than 20 years, McKesson has been creating solutions specifically designed to help physician practices reduce time spent on administrative tasks and meet the needs of running a modern practice.
