November 19, 2012 -- Healthcare information systems firm McKesson plans to give away installations of its Practice Choice electronic health record (EHR) software valued at more than $1 million to 100 physicians who provide unreimbursed healthcare services to charity patients.

McKesson Practice Choice is a fully integrated EHR and practice management Web-based software program designed specifically for small, independent, primary care practices. The selected physicians will receive free 26-month licenses to the software.

To qualify for the software, physician practices must be either primary care, internal medicine, family practice, gynecology, or pediatric practitioners; be in a solo private practice or a physician practice with no more than 10 physicians; 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. The physicians must be located in greater metropolitan Buffalo, NY; Cincinnati; Cleveland; Detroit; Miami; Milwaukee; Newark, NJ; Philadelphia; or St. Louis.

McKesson is calling upon other corporations to help by providing free hardware, Internet services, office furniture, and other necessary technology and supplies to the program.
