Pennsylvania hospital employs McKesson for revenue cycle overhaul
Abington Memorial Hospital in Abington, Pa., plans to replace 26 disparate systems from various vendors with a single end-to-end revenue management system from McKesson.

Abington's new system will include the McKesson Horizon Enterprise Revenue Management solution, which is designed to automate operational and financial processes and connect hospitals with payors, financial institutions, physicians and consumers, said Michael Walsh, senior vice president of finance and chief financial office at Abington. The healthcare provider is an independent 570-bed, acute-care teaching hospital with a medical staff of more than 900 physicians and more than 5,000 employees.

The facility expects that Horizon Enterprise Revenue Management will eliminate bottlenecks and streamline workflow throughout the hospital, according to Walsh.
