Comanche County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) (Lawton, Okla.), a 283-bed hospital, has selected McKesson Corporation (Atlanta) in an effort to enhance medication safety and create an electronic health record (EHR) system.

CCMH will deploy a combination of the Horizon Clinicals suite of solutions, along with resource management systems and information technology services, says the company.

According to McKesson, its ambulatory EHR solution, Horizon Ambulatory Care, enables the hospital to partner with participating local physicians to enable access to patient information, including test results; encounter notes; and diagnostic images.
