McKesson Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

In April 2018 McKesson Corporation launched Health Mart Atlas, a network of high-performing community pharmacies dedicated to delivering high-quality care with a personal touch.

McKesson Risks and Challenges

McKesson Technology Solutions division divested its premised software assets for practice management including McKesson Practice Choice, Medisoft, Medisoft Clinical, Lytec, Lytec MD, and Practice Partner. That came after declining revenues for the division.

The acquisition of Siemens Health by Cerner is expected to pressure McKesson to rethink the long-term strategy of its technology business, which has been under assault by a slew of Cloud-based and domain-specific vendors that focus on nothing else but software.

On the other hand, McKesson does most of its business by distributing drugs and surgical supplies.

Following its 2011 decision to stop the development of its legacy Horizon products and pour its resources on Paragon as well as other Microsoft-based applications, McKesson continues to reshuffle its software lineup through acquisitions.

The purchase of MED3000 was the latest example of McKesson needing to deploy proven revenue cycle management and EHR systems to the physician market. MED3000 has 1,900 employees in the U.S., and its customers include more than 10,000 physicians, hospitals and health systems, physician networks. The purchase also underscores the difficulty in transitioning some of McKesson’s on-premise systems to the Cloud. The sale of its on-premise assets in 2016 underscores the fact that McKesson's software strategy is in a state of flux, which raises the question of its long-term commitment to the software market.

McKesson Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI

McKesson primarily relies on its direct sales force to sell its hospital information management systems, but its low-end physician practice applications are being sold through its direct sales force and a network of value-added resellers.

McKesson has a network of about 100 resellers, which account for 20% of its software revenues.
