A.O. Fox Memorial Hospital, located in Oneonta, N.Y., is implementing San Francisco-based McKesson’s Horizon Clinicals suite.

Fox will install McKesson’s pharmacy information system and a high-speed unit dose bar-code medication packager to automate fulfillment of inpatient medication orders, says the company. In addition, Fox will deploy McKesson’s Horizon Ambulatory Care EHR solution and McKesson’s EDIS. If a patient is admitted, the electronic record initiated in the ED will be continued through the inpatient stay, according to the company.

The health system will phase in additional EHR capabilities, including the ability to place orders, document patient visits and make patient information available across care settings, according to McKesson.
