Crittenton Hospital Medical Center (Rochester, Mich.) is implementing Alpharetta, Ga.-based McKesson Corp.’s Horizon Enterprise Revenue Management solution.

According to the company, the solution combines rules-based software and connectivity services, which can help Crittenton utilize best practices to improve the revenue cycle management processes. The Medical Center plans to roll out the solution in a staged approach, starting with the Horizon Enterprise Revenue Management access management module, it says.

Crittenton Hospital Medical Center is a 290-bed, acute care facility serving the Michigan communities in Oakland, Macomb and Lapeer counties. Crittenton provides a continuum of clinical programs and a medical staff of nearly 500 physicians, representing a range of medical specialties providing primary, secondary and tertiary-level care.
