About McKesson iKnowMed
McKesson Specialty Health’s oncology-specific electronic health record (EHR) system is designed specifically for community-based oncologists. Featuring tools like chemotherapy order management, the second generation of the iKnowMed platform is designed specifically for cancer care providers and works well for both individual and group oncology practices.
iKnowMed is an EHR web-based platform that assists oncologists by providing integrated solutions for community-based practices. Using this technology, oncologists practicing away from large hospital settings are able to increase productivity and improve patient care. The features were developed specifically for cancer care, with the tools allowing oncologists to monitor treatment outcomes, record cancer stages, and manage treatment recommendations. With McKesson Specialty Health’s newer version of the EHR program, iKnowMeD Generation 2, practitioners interact with the program through a customizable, web-based dashboard. iKnowMed Generation 2’s features also allow physicians to easily navigate chart records, document patient encounters, and reduce errors commonly associated with paper records. Additionally, iKnowMed Generation 2 includes secure mobile access which allows physicians to monitor health records on-the-go without compromising compliance with HIPAA regulations.
iKnowMed haS been implemented more than 1,400 cancer care specialists in the community. Oncology practices and their patients benefit from implementing iKnowMed Generation 2 as the program includes advanced disease management and chemotherapy management functions. The program is also 2014 Edition Meaningful Use certified to help practices achieve Stage 1 and Stage 2 of Meaningful Use. Oncology practices that implement iKnowMed are better equipped to provide quality patient care in a safe and efficient manner.
