More help for oncology and specialists to participate with e-prescribing and hopefully make a little more money with the Medicare Incentive plan.  Also RelayHealth has a PHR that connects to the Microsoft HealthVault as well, so those medications could be included in the PHR for the patient as well. 

Microsoft HealthVault and RelayHealth (McKesson) to Connect Doctors and Patients

If you have been around a few hospitals over the years, you are almost certain to have run into or worked with some of McKesson's Health IT products, either Windows based and now Linux as well.  BD 

South San Francisco, CA -- March 17, 2009 -- McKesson Specialty Care Solutions, a division of McKesson Corp., today introduced a fully image integrated e-prescribing solution that enables oncology and other specialty physicians to participate in the Medicare E-Prescribing (E-Rx) Incentive Program.   Leveraging RelayHealth's eScript™, physicians will now be able to electronically file medication renewals and refills on behalf of patients directly from Lynx Mobile™, McKesson's charge capture and inventory management technology.

Powered by eScript, the solution also incorporates Lynx TotalView™ to give practices the reporting tools necessary to track their progress towards achieving the incentives available under the Medicare e-Rx program.  This integrated solution fits within existing daily work flow, is easy to use and complies with a variety of standards for electronic services.

"By adding eScript to Lynx Mobile, we are not only enabling physicians to participate in the Medicare e-Rx program, we are helping improve practice efficiency and patient safety," said Mike Kelly, chief information officer, McKesson Specialty Care Solutions. "
