Join McKesson at NAHC 2012The theme for the National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) 2012 Annual Meeting & Exposition certainly is appropriate in today’s changing care and reimbursement environment: “Technology: the Great Equalizer.”

I invite you to take full advantage of the educational and networking opportunities during the annual meeting Oct. 21-25 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

McKesson has three major sponsorships during the event: the CEO Leadership School, as well as two educational tracks: Clinical and Management/Leadership. We have 17 customers who are presenting sessions at the conference, so we’ll be rooting them on! I’m looking forward to the session I’m presenting with Lois Glanz, RN, BSN, from Iowa Health Home Care. It’s Session 705: “What Information Technology will be in Your Future?” We’ll cover:

  • Growing adoption of electronic health records and web-based solutions
  • Real-time connectivity for clinicians
  • Collaborative, patient-centered care

Be sure to drop McKesson Booth #717 to say hello and enjoy specialty coffee or gourmet tea. We’re launching a new advertising campaign this fall, so we’d love to get your opinion of the new approach at a survey station we’re setting up in the booth.

Of course, you’ll want to get a personalized demonstration of the power of McKesson Homecare™ and a special gift only available to those who view a demonstration. With an eye toward tomorrow, our new home health solution now features the CareAxis Technology™ methodology. We’ve incorporated this unique methodology to help guide your clinicians through their day with clinical decision support and workflow management tools.

Before you leave the booth, you’ll also want to get a sticker on your Bingo card for a chance to win one of 10 prizes for visiting our booth and those of our partners:

  • Bosch, Booth #1229
  • McKesson Medical Surgical Supplies, Booth #811
  • PlayMaker CRM, Booth #1201
  • WorldView Ltd., Booth #110

We look forward to seeing you during NAHC and telling you more about how the future is closer to home!
