We specialize in several different service areas of McKesson staffing, please read on to learn about them.
Training specialists create and provide services that facilitate confident use of McKesson technology within your healthcare organization—and, at HealthTECH, we provide leading McKesson consultants who specifically focus on this niche.
Because this application can be configured in unique ways to meet your customized needs, McKesson training programs must be designed to dovetail with those configurations and to present role-based information to departments within your facilities. For example, the needs of retail-based pharmacists will be different from physicians or insurance specialists, and vice versa. Experienced McKesson training consultants will present information differently to each group to meet their needs in engaging and interactive ways.
Plus, there are technical writing professionals within the HealthTECH network that focus on creating process documentation that can be used during McKesson training sessions and beyond at facility workstations.
“McKesson consulting professional” is a pretty broad term. In order to provide you with the consulting services your organization needs, when you reach out to us for staff augmentation services we’ll ask for specifics about the knowledge and experience you need your McKesson EHR consultants to have. This software is both robust and intricate, which means that facilities like yours often need multiple types of EHR consultants, each with their own niche specialties—and deep knowledge about their particular forte.
For example, you might need a McKesson consulting professional to help you build and develop certain Paragon, Horizon, and/or RelayHealth modules. Or, you might need to supplement your staff for your EHR optimization or when cutting over to go-live with your technology. Other times, you may need a professional to provide project management or another broad scope of services.
Just let us know! We staff McKesson projects of all lengths and complexities, whether professionals are needed for a short amount of time or as a permanent hire.
It isn’t unusual, as you build your EHR implementation team, to discover gaps in skill sets. Perhaps there is a specific implementation area where you won’t have enough skilled staff; or, in some cases, you may find that you don’t have anyone on your team with a highly specialized set of skills that you’ll need during the implementation period.
Strategically filling in those gaps from the start will help your facility to optimally create and execute processes. McKesson implementation experts can play a key role by crafting goals, tasks, timelines, and deadlines; optimally allocating resources; cleaning and migrating data; identifying and addressing workflow challenges; and more within the project’s budget and scope.
When determining how much staff augmentation you’ll need, first analyze your in-house healthcare IT staff. How big is your internal team? What specialties do they have? If a staff member gets assigned to the McKesson EHR implementation, what tasks will they no longer be able to handle, time-wise? Is that acceptable or the best use of human resources?
Please contact us to discuss how to right-size your McKesson implementation team.
Go beyond basic implementation of your McKesson application by optimizing the technology to maximize how you’ll use this robust, highly flexible software. HealthTECH Resources offers McKesson consultants who specialize in doing exactly that.
Pacing of the McKesson implementation and optimization is key. When the process is rushed, it’s easy to skip over the myriad of intricate workflows that the software must manage. On the other hand, when the process isn’t streamlined before making the software available to users, these end users will spend too much time using the technology. McKesson optimization specialists can leverage their experience to appropriately pace the implementation and optimization processes; pinpoint possible pitfalls; and develop workarounds to maximize benefits for medical professionals, pharmacists, and patients.
McKesson Go-Live Services
All of your facility’s careful planning and hard work will culminate in one key day: your highly anticipated McKesson go-live date. Optimal success of this go-live cutover requires targeted training, change management implementations, and more. When strategically handled, the result is the successful launch of a robust system that will allow your organization to maximize usage and financial benefits alike.
Contrast this scenario to what can happen when a lack of planning or poor planning has complicated the transition. This leads to missed deadlines, extra expenses, and plenty of frustration.
McKesson consultants in our network gather input from people in diverse roles to minimize transition issues, checking off punch list items one by one as they test the application setup before going live. Before the software goes live, EHR consultants can ensure that all is optimally complete, including configurations, role-specific user training sessions, support systems, and more.
McKesson EHR/EMR Migration
Each healthcare organization has unique needs with their McKesson migration project, in part because each has a unique starting point. Some may need EHR/EMR migration and implementation services to upload paper records into digital form while others are upgrading from an EMR system to a robust EHR. No matter the specifics, the process can be complex, including:
- Assessing your current EMR/EHR system and functionalities
- Exploring the McKesson system and functionalities
- Crafting a streamlined yet highly effective process plan
- Appropriately staffing your migration team through in-house/staff augmentation
- McKesson implementation, integration, and optimization processes
- Go-live switchover
- McKesson training and change management services
Data migration decisions will likely need to be made in these ways:
- Analyzing data integrity
- Determining degrees of data duplication
- Choosing migration/integration processes
- Deciding what data to NOT migrate
- Selecting what data will be archived
Each element of your EMR migration/EHR migration can be crucial with the quality of this process significantly affecting the integrity of medical records from that point on.

Let’s Get Started
McKesson is an advanced software that helps facilitate your organization’s ability to improve patient care. The technology provides highly efficient, secure workflow tools to help pharmacies and other healthcare facilities to boost patient outcomes while also accelerating revenue and profitability and reducing the amount of working capital needed. Your organizations can securely host data; obtain centralized, real-time information across locations; manage workflow streams; and create targeted reporting, all in a customizable and scalable way.
Paragon by McKesson, for example, is a robust EHR system that comprehensively integrates clinical and financial functions for health systems of all sizes. Benefits of Paragon include the ability of your facilities to reduce the complexity of your EHR system and simplify data management at a lowered cost of ownership. Applications are easy to use with anytime/anywhere web access through mobile devices.
As another example, Horizon Home Care by McKesson helps healthcare facilities to expedite front-end processes to shorten revenue cycles through streamlined billing rules and more.
The overall processes can be similar as both involve the implementation of digital systems to maintain health records although EHR implementations can be more complex. Here’s why. An electronic medical record (EMR) implementation digitizes paper charts and typically include a person’s medical history, diagnoses, allergies, and so forth. They provide easy access for medical professionals within an individual health system but don’t have sharing capabilities that go much beyond that.
An electronic health record (EHR) has much more robust capabilities. They contain what you’d find in a patient’s EMR plus insurance information, imaging reports, lab data, wellness device inputs, and more. Plus, besides its broader scope of data sources, medical providers can share information in real time among healthcare systems to collaborate on patient care.
The benefits of EHR implementations are numerous, including how facilities can provide enhanced quality of care through information exchanges that can take place in real time. Availability of up-to-date, accurate information improves care delivery and reduces the possibility of errors; for example, electronic prescribing eliminates errors that can occur by misreading handwriting on paper prescriptions, including dosage errors. This saves time for physicians, pharmacies, and patients alike, while protecting everyone.
Another benefit comes from reduced paperwork, which frees up healthcare and pharmacy workers to focus on more meaningful tasks. Plus, as paperwork is lessened, less storage space is needed, which leads to reduced costs, and ease of information retrieval further streamlines processes and their associated costs. Yet another benefit is the trackability of communications among physicians, pharmacies, insurance providers and more, including medical coding information. Communications are stored within the system for ease of reference, which reduces the likelihood of errors and the need for followup calls.
