Release Date: Friday, February 17, 2012

In some ways, Paragon is like McKesson’s growing teenager: McKesson is investing a lot of money in Paragon and it is developing rapidly and starting to get a deep voice, but some elements are not fully developed or have just recently bloomed. The increased multimillion dollar investment in Paragon was announced in December 2011 as part of McKesson’s Better Health 2020 strategy; the rapid growth is seen in the fact that Paragon’s customer base has nearly quadrupled over the last five years and in the accelerated delivery of Paragon functionality; the immaturity is manifest with product gaps in ambulatory, HR, and physician documentation (which was recently released in December 2011) and weaknesses with ED and lab.
