We provide a service that makes it easy for consumers and healthcare organizations to securely exchange information. Today, patients see more care providers than ever before, making information sharing a real challenge. We see an opportunity to organize and streamline patient information and transform health care into a more collaborative and integrated system. Accessible, current information is the first step in the delivery of effective healthcare. Also, Patients are no longer passive recipients of healthcare services, they are demanding to be more engaged with their providers and our health system needs to provide them with the tools to do so.
McKesson Corporation acquired RelayHealth in 2006 to simplify how the business of healthcare is managed while making the delivery of care safer and more efficient. To accomplish this objective, McKesson acquired best-in-class companies with a focus on providing connected healthcare systems and solutions. This strategy gave RelayHealth a broad range of solutions and experiences from which to draw, and the unique advantage of bringing on board industry leaders with 20 years of healthcare information technology experience.
Looking forward, we remain focused on one thing: connectivity. As more and more of our nation’s healthcare system goes electronic, we plan to continue to meet challenges and opportunities alike through an open network that supports future growth through interoperability among all organizations, systems and solutions.
