LAS VEGAS -- June 27, 2013

At McKesson ideaShare 2013 today,  McKesson Pharmacy Systems & Automation
(MPS&A) announced the release of its McKesson Mobile Delivery™ application
(app), a new tool that can help improve adherence rates, drive greater
operational efficiencies for pharmacies and reduce costly hospital admissions.
Designed for use with Apple iOS devices such as the iPhone^®, iPad^® and iPad
mini, the Mobile Delivery app can scan prescription labels, process credit or
FSA cards, capture all payment and pharmacy-related signatures, and email
receipts. Within the pharmacy, the app supports drive-through services.

“The new McKesson Mobile Delivery app allows pharmacists to bring their
pharmacy services to the point-of-care, whether it’s the doorstep of a
customer’s house or a hospital bedside,” said Nathan Mott, president, McKesson
Pharmacy Systems & Automation. “Taking advantage of this mobility, pharmacists
can ensure that patients receive their medication on time or before they even
leave the hospital. This level of pharmacist involvement in the continuum of
care is helping increase patient medication adherence and drive down hospital
admission rates.”

Developed in partnership with Sage Payment Solutions, the payments division
for Sage North America, the McKesson Mobile Delivery app interfaces with a
card reader that attaches to any Apple iOS device through the earphone socket
and securely encrypts every swipe. Funds from swiped payments are deposited
directly into pharmacy bank accounts within one to two business days.

“Many pharmacies carry the cost of offering house accounts to delivery
customers,” said Mott. “With this app they can provide quality care services,
get paid faster and improve the cash flow in their business.”

Additional features of the McKesson Mobile Delivery app include controlled
substance tracking that records the name and state or federal identification
of the person receiving prescriptions that are classified as government
regulated. The recorded identification information as well as all transactions
and signatures captured on the device can be monitored and viewed in real time
using a secure online portal.
