McKesson announced July 8 the final acquisition of A.L.I. Technologies. The A.L.I. line of PACS products, now known as Horizon Medical Imaging, complements McKesson's Horizon Clinicals suite. Together, the two technologies will provide integrated access to the complete patient record. The goal behind the acquisition is to consolidate the technologies needed to automate and streamline workflow along every step of the diagnostic process from the time a test is ordered until the image is interpreted and the results are distributed to the referring physician, according to the company. The acquisition boosts McKesson's customer base to more than 500 installations. A.L.I. will be known as the McKesson Medical Imaging Group. Its employees will remain in the Vancouver, BC, location.
