Abington Memorial Hospital (Abington, Pa.) plans to replace 26 disparate systems from various vendors with a single end-to-end revenue management system from Atlanta-based McKesson.

Abington’s new system will include the McKesson Horizon Enterprise Revenue Management solution, and it is slated to begin implementation of the systems in early 2009.

Abington Memorial Hospital is an independent, 570-bed, acute care teaching hospital with a medical staff of more than 900 physicians and 5,000 employees. It provides medical care and health services to residents of Bucks, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. A regional provider, Abington Memorial Hospital has the only Level II accredited trauma center in Montgomery County, and offers highly specialized services in cardiac care, cancer care, neuroscience and orthopedics.
