LMS Announces McKesson’s Horizon Perinatal CareTM is Now Available


After almost two and a half years of development, LMS Medical Systems announced their strategic partner, McKesson, has now made their Horizon Perinatal CareTM product available to the marketplace. This cutting edge software solution incorporates LMS' CALMTM technology and is the first obstetrics/perinatal information system that provides interdepartmental communications between labour and delivery units and other relevant departments within a hospital.

This technology is significant as it eliminates redundant charting and supports knowledge transfer by giving seamless access to historical patient information. For example, a narcotic pain medication administered to the mother will be automatically noted on the fetal monitor, allowing the physician to understand why the fetal heart rate dropped at that point in time.

McKesson is the leading healthcare services and IT company in the U.S., with a client base that consists of 30% of all U.S. hospitals. With that kind of exposure, watch LMS’ revenue continue to grow over the coming months.
