McKesson offers a complete suite of medical imaging systems, including McKesson Enterprise Image Repository, a new offering independent of PACS that archives and manages image data. The Horizon Medical Imaging PACS includes a medical imaging workflow platform, a mammography system, medical imaging collaboration tools, medical imaging system tools, and architecture and infrastructure.
Designed to improve the administrative and clinical workflow of radiology departments, the Radiology Manager workflow management software tracks and manages patients and exams. Horizon Study Share is a Web-based system that enables radiologists and other medical imaging specialists to organize and share images, teaching files, and reference case information needed during the course of daily practice using PACS. Variable Thickness Regional Intensity Protocol (VTRIP) allows for efficient reading of CT and magnetic resonance (MR) by embedding advanced viewing, image analysis, and reconstruction capabilities directly into the workflow. McKesson officials assert that this feature allows faster case reading times.
