McKesson releases Paragon 14.0 EHR solution

McKesson Enterprise Information Solutions released the latest version of Paragon, its comprehensive EHR solution. Paragon 14.0 includes a number of enhancements, particularly for pharmacy, laboratory and operating room management.

Paragon 14.0 offers improved computerized physician order entry that aids pharmacy formulary compliance. It is also integrated with McKesson's OneContent enterprise resource planning system and enhances the Paragon Laboratory Results Release Grid, offering a Paragon Laboratory alphanumeric result view.

"Since we went live with Paragon 14.0, we have received positive feedback from a large number of clinicians," said Christopher Ryan, CIO of Auburn (N.Y.) Community Hospital, which served as a pilot site for Paragon 14.0. "They like the enhancements to workflow and the improvements in navigation. The development team has done a great job in improving the application during the beta process with a focus on enhancing the provider experience."
