Onmark Launches Integrated Quality(TM) Program to Help Physicians Succeed With National Quality Initiatives
Date:1/30/2008

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Onmark, a leading national group purchasing organization (GPO) for community-based practices and a McKesson Specialty company, today announced the launch of its Integrated Quality (IQ) Program with the goal of helping community-based oncology practices improve the quality of patient care.

As a result, practices can identify opportunities to enhance the quality of care they provide to patients and improve the overall efficiency of their practice.

"There is a growing effort to standardize and improve the quality of patient care delivery in the United States through the development of measurable quality indicators. We believe the Onmark IQ program will help oncology practices succeed in a quality-driven healthcare environment by making it easy to benchmark clinical data to both national standards and to other practices," said Kim Bergstrom, Pharm.D., Chief Clinical Officer of OTN and clinical advisor to Onmark.

Surveys are HIPAA compliant and do not contain recognizable patient identifiers. Collected data wi
