McKesson donates EHR to San Diego non-profit
McKesson has donated its Practice Partner Patient Records EHR software to San Diego-based Father Joe's Villages, a non-profit organization that provides care to thousands of indigent patients in California.

The Practice Partner EHR will help Father Joe’s to improve medical record documentation and promote health screenings, enabling the medical staff to develop benchmarking reports for areas such as prenatal care, psychiatric care, diabetic management and asthmatic disease management, according to McKesson.

“McKesson’s EHR has been instrumental in helping us serve this very needy, and often overlooked population throughout the San Diego area and in Indio,” said Margaret McCahill, MD, medical director at the St. Vincent de Paul Village Family Health Center, which is a part of Father Joe’s Village.

Father Joe’s non-profit corporation relies on more than 200 volunteers to offer a variety of services and programs to the homeless.
