McKesson announced today the expanded, nationwide roll-out of its McKesson Gives Back program, a philanthropic initiative designed to recognize and reward physician practices that provide unreimbursed healthcare to America’s neediest citizens. Initially launched in November 2012 in select cities, the program is now available to physicians and clinics across the United States to support providers delivering care to underserved and uninsured communities.

Physicians and clinics selected by the McKesson Gives Back program are provided with ™, a fully integrated, web-based electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solution. The solution gives providers clinical, financial, operational and patient tools to help manage their practices and provide quality care. Bread of Healing, a charity clinic with three locations throughout Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was the first of the McKesson Gives Back recipients. The clinic received a free 26-month license to McKesson Practice Choice to better connect its clinics and serve its community.

“Expanding clinician access to practice management solutions is critical to empowering health care professionals to better serve patients, coordinate care and improve outcomes,” said Patrick Leonard, president, McKesson Revenue Management Solutions. “The response we’ve received since launching McKesson Gives Back has truly been remarkable. We’re thrilled to expand this offering to support deserving health practitioners across the country who truly are paying it forward every day in communities.”

By providing this much needed resource to physicians, McKesson is enabling recipients to better deploy their already limited resources to more effectively and directly benefit patients in their communities. The program aligns with McKesson’s ™, an initiative designed to help healthcare providers achieve better patient care, better business health and better connectivity in their communities.

Acceptance into the program is on a rolling basis until 100 providers are selected. To qualify for the software, physician practices must be primary care, internal medicine, family practice, gynecology, or pediatric practitioners; be in private practice, (not hospital employed); work in a 1-10 physician practice; have a demonstrated history of providing unreimbursed care to the low-income community for six months or more; and have broadband or high speed Internet connectivity in the location where the physician expects to use the software.
