McKesson, a big-box provider of EHRs and other clinical systems software, also offers BI tools to help healthcare organizations dig into clinical, financial, and operations data.
According to KLAS, McKesson's BI tools are used frequently by healthcare providers, especially those already using McKesson software--even though the company's tools are also capable of working in other environments.
KLAS writes, "McKesson appears to be ahead in creating [various] analytical packages and offers surgery and pharmacy analytics."
