 McKesson Mobile Leading the healthcare technology trends for 2013 are mobile devices. Hospitals benefit from technologies that allow physicians to do work on-the-go. McKesson understands this benefit and has a new solution in its Horizon Patient Folder™ product line that helps hospitals decrease deficient records.

Speed Up Deficiency Completion

This new technology provides doctors and hospitals a mobile advantage with the ability to complete documentation across wireless platforms, including iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® devices.

The mobile application includes robust functionality to sign and edit documents, help decrease deficiencies and view pertinent patient demographic data via the selected device. In addition, it uses badge-push notifications to alert users that deficiencies exist.
