The Value & Performance Billing Solution

Medisoft Version 16 (v16) practice management system is designed to give you a new level of operational efficiency and confidence.  Medisoft v16 brings together the best features and functionality of past releases with the latest innovations and enhancements from McKesson.  This powerful and affordable productivity system has been enhanced to seamlessly and automatically manage scheduling, billing, reporting and revenue management.

Improves office workflow and simplifies the patient scheduling process

Medisoft comes standard with a scheduling engine that replaces inefficient paper-based schedules with an electronic view of your office resources, making it quick and easy to schedule, move or cancel appointments.  The add-on Office Hours Professional module makes scheduling even easier.

Streamlines accounting, billing and collection processes to make staff more efficient and help practices get paid faster

From the front office to the back office, Medisoft helps make sure you receive the maximum reimbursement for the services you provide.

  • Verify insurance eligibility before scheduled appointments.
  • Collect co-payments and balances due at the time of check-in.
  • Add payments directly into the Medisoft billing system from the scheduling screen.
  • Produce a "quick receipt" for payments collected up-front.
  • Set up patients using the Patient Quick Entry feature, which consolidates billing data entry into one easy screen.
  • Submit claims electronically and manage claims by resubmitting individual claims or batches of claims when there is a dispute with a payor.
  • Produce professional, easy to read patient statements.
  • Automatically populate the Collections Worklist for follow-up with payors and patients on unpaid claims.

Enhanced reporting - Medisoft reporting has never been better

Medisoft v16 includes more than 200 reports to help make your practice run smoothly. Medisoft reports give unparalleled information on managed care plans, in-depth financial information, marketing statistics, service facility financial information, templates to export data for use in other software and the ability to run custom reports.

Medisoft Reports Professional (available as an add-on module) offers 368 reports, charts and graphs. It also includes a report server that enables reports to run at scheduled times and be delivered via e-mail, as well as the ability to edit standard reports and create custom reports.

Medisoft v16 also offers you the quickest, most affordable path to an EHR by upgrading to Medisoft Clinical.

The Complete EMR Solution for Smaller Practices


With the latest Medisoft release, McKesson offers Medisoft Clinical, a complete electronic health record/practice management system that works seamlessly to minimize practice disruption.

Medisoft Clinical combines the practice management features of Medisoft v16 with a fully functional electronic health record (EHR) at a price point geared to smaller physician practices.  With Medisoft Clinical, you get the latest in practice automation without a lot of hassle and at a price you can afford.

Experience the best of both worlds with a combined EHR/PM solution that enables your office to easily perform important tasks like:

  • Sharing demographic information to eliminate redundant data entry
  • Automatically informing the nurse in the exam room area when a patient is ready for his/her appointment to save staff time
  • Creating an electronic encounter form that is automatically populated with ICD-9 and CPT-4 codes based on the provider's SOAP notes

Maximize Efficiency

Unlike other EHRs, Medisoft Clinical features Bright Note TechnologyTM design that allows physicians to complete the entire chart from a single progress note.  Any information you add to the note - such as medications, vital sign results or lab results - automatically updates the entire chart, all from the note.

Documentation tools adapt to the providers' style and offer a choice of data entry methods including:

  • templates
  • speech recognition
  • transcription
  • digital pen
  • dictation
  • Web-based patient data entry

A provider dashboard lets you view all critical information - including messages, incoming results and a daily patient schedule - in one place.  In addition, a review bin provides at-a-glance viewing of notes, documents and lab results.

Physicians also are able to quickly see overdue orders and track each order by patient, status and expected time for a result to return.  In addition, incoming results automatically update order status.

Enhance Quality

Medisoft Clinical offers easy access to the information you need to ensure exceptional care.  An extensive knowledge base includes:

  • Web-based access to hundreds of disease and medication protocols
  • a broad range of progress note templates covering both primary care and specialty topics
  • guidelines for diagnosis and treatment
  • health maintenance protocols based on age, sex, disease, medications or other conditions specific to the patient

Ensure Safety

Electronic prescribing (via SureScripts®) improves patient safety and speeds new prescription and refill workflow.  Physicians and other providers use thousands of prescription templates and a comprehensive database of drug costs and checks - drug interaction, drug/allergy, drug/disease, drug/diagnosis - in addition to proactive dose advice.

Physician Tools

  • Analyze the note with a sophisticated coding advisor for Evaluation and Management (E&M) codes using both the 1995 and 1997 CMS Documentation Guidelines to optimize coding based on documentation.
  • Load transcribed text and populate the entire patient chart including the problem list, medication list, medical histories and vital signs.  Partially dictate a visit and have the transcribed text automatically go to the correct place in the note.
  • Import and export chart summary data using CCD or CCR formats.  Communicate with other practices' EMRs or with the patient's personal health record (PHR).
  • When importing data, choose which chart sections to update while still keeping an entire copy of the imported document.
  • Customize chart viewing by physician to allow provider (and specialty) specific views for charts, chart summaries and flow charts.
