McKesson Earns KLAS Category Leader Distinction for 2013

McKesson Pharmacy Systems & Automation (MPS&A) announced today that EnterpriseRx – its cloud-based, centrally hosted pharmacy management system – earned top honors as a Category Leader in the 2013 Best in KLAS: Software and Services report. KLAS, an independent healthcare research organization, reserves the Category Leader designation for vendors that lead select market segments with software solutions designed to help healthcare professionals provide better care for their patients.

“We are proud to earn KLAS’s recognition for the outstanding technology that EnterpriseRx offers the health system market,” said Emilie Ray, vice president and general manager, outpatient, MPS&A. “We believe our pharmacy management system’s strong ranking in this industry is a reflection of our commitment to provide world-class pharmacy solutions to pharmacists, physicians, and patients.”

EnterpriseRx is designed to allow pharmacists to run a patient-centered business and to make a pronounced difference in the way that pharmacies are traditionally run. The system increases operational efficiencies behind the counter so that pharmacists can spend more time on clinical programs such as adherence, Medication Therapy Management and distribution of Specialty medications.

“EnterpriseRx has set its self apart in operational efficiency and support of clinical programs, but our next focus is on connectivity between providers throughout the health system,” said Nathan Mott, president MPS&A. “With the backing of McKesson and our involvement in the CommonWell Health Alliance, we are looking forward to being at the forefront of an initiative that connects pharmacy to the continuum of care.”
