At ASHP 22, McKesson’s RxO team discussed how they can help health systems achieve more streamlined workflows, increase PAP savings, reduce delays in patient treatment, and most importantly improve patient outcomes.

O’Mally Monahan, vice president, Operations, McKesson RxO, was on-hand to provide live-demos and discuss how health systems can maximize recovery efforts to support patient care with McKesson’s Patient Assistance Program (PAP) or with the PAP Recovery Navigator solution for in-house management. This included McKesson’s new First Dose Technology, which integrates directly with hospital scheduling data to identify PAP-eligible patients prior to their arrival for treatments.
