The Kansas Regional Extension Center announced Wednesday the final list of certified Meaningful Use vendors of electronic health records. McKesson, a Fortune 14 company and developer of Practice Partner EHR, was selected as one of the top vendors.

Professional Data Services (PDS), McKesson’s largest value-added-reseller and six time recipient of McKesson's Top Value-Added Reseller of the Year award, is the implementation vendor of choice for McKesson throughout the Midwest and other regions of the country.

Based in Hutchinson, KS, PDS is known for PDS Cortex, an award-winning medical practice management software, as well as their outstanding implementation and customer service. PDS was founded in 1973 and has been serving the medical community for over 38 years.

McKesson Practice Partner EHR features Bright Note Technology, which enables physicians to use their preferred method of charting to capture data in a single note and then synchronize that across the entire patient chart.

McKesson has been selected as a certified EHR vendor in over eighteen regions, and is currently awaiting the final vendor list announcement for another 28 regions.

The purpose of the RECs is to furnish aid by means of education, outreach and technical assistance to assist primary care providers in their geographic service areas to select meaningfully use certified EHR technology to improve the quality and value of healthcare.

The Kansas REC selected eight EHR vendors and categorized them into two tiers.

- Tier 1: Cerner; eClinicalWorks; e-MDs; McKesson; Pulse; SuccessEHS
- Tier 2: NextGen; Sage

Tier 1 vendors meet all terms, conditions and protections defined by the Kansas REC. Tier 2 vendors meet only some of the terms, conditions and protections.

Two vendors, Cerner and Pulse did not meet the KS REC requirements for the original EMR vendor list but negotiated with the Kansas REC to be put back on the list.

“We are very excited with the recent announcement from the Kansas REC”, stated Race Proffitt, Director of Marketing & Sales at PDS. “Physicians have a number of choices in the EMR market today. We know there is a land rush mentality in the decision process of EMR. However, since doctors and staff will be working with these systems on a day-to-day basis for several years, they need to take into consideration what training, support and practical application the solution provides.”

PDS recently announced a limited-time Interest Free Financing Program which is designed to help independent physician practices implement electronic health records (EHR) and practice management systems into their medical practices. Physicians can bundle software, implementation and training and have the cost spread over a full year with no zero interest.
