McKesson Works With Sage to Develop and Deliver Innovative Mobile Delivery 
Application 
McKesson Prescription Delivery Services Bring Pharmacists to the
Point of Care to Increase Patient Adherence, Reduce Hospital
Readmission 
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/29/13 --   Sage North America today
announced that it partnered with San Francisco, Calif.-based McKesson
Pharmacy Systems & Automation (MPS&A), a division of healthcare
services and information technology company McKesson Corporation, to
help develop the McKesson Mobile Delivery(TM) application ("app") for
prescription delivery services. McKesson Mobile Delivery was created
to help improve prescription adherence rates, increase operational
efficiencies for pharmacies and reduce costly hospital re-admissions.
McKesson introduced the application at its annual McKesson ideaShare
2013 conference, and more than 50 pharmacies have already signed on
to use it. 
McKesson Mobile Delivery was specifically designed to enable
pharmacies to make home deliveries and process payments using mobile
devices like iPhones(R) and iPads(R). The solution is
HIPAA-compliant, is compatible with Apple iOS devices and pairs with
a Sage Mobile Payments card reader to ensure each transaction is
fully encrypted and PCI-compliant. The McKesson application allows
pharmacists to bring their services to the point of care and
capitalize on the advantages inherent with mobility. Customers
benefit from home delivery, while pharmacists gain benefits by
capturing the payment at the point of delivery, improving cash flow
for pharmacists' businesses and increasing quality of care for
patients.  
"McKesson had a clear vision for the direction it wanted to take with
McKesson Mobile Delivery, and the vital features needed to be
HIPAA-compliant and simple to use," said Greg Hammermaster, president
of Sage Payment Solutions. "We included the ability to autodeposit
the payments directly into pharmacy bank accounts within one or two
business days to help ensure the application adds more value for
pharmacies in both cash flow and back-office efficiencies." 
Sage Payment Solutions provides both secure standalone and secure
integrated payment processing solutions, including Sage Exchange,
Sage Virtual Terminal and Sage Mobile Payments. Visit Sage Pa
