Thread regarding McKesson Corp. layoffs

Allscripts to acquire McKesson EIS


If McK healthcare software is so grand, they would not be selling the business off to another competitor. Per quote from the article:

“We have selected a company that can serve the long-term interests of our customers and has the experience and capabilities to deliver value through its population health, precision medicine, consumer and care management solutions,” said John H. Hammergren, chairman and chief executive officer, McKesson. “The conclusion of this process demonstrates our commitment to support the success of our hospital customers and provide growth opportunities for Enterprise Information Solutions employees.”

Do you really think McK values the EIS employees with all the American layoffs, and Indian Offshoring? Growth opportunities? How many hospitals are looking at the Allscripts solution?

McK should have taken care of their employees while the software was in tact with good solutions for large and small hospitals.

Yes, no software is perfect, but dumping it to the competition shows what McK wanted to do all along by getting rid of a failing product line DUE TO THE incompetence and nasty decisions unleashed by the HORRIFIC EXECUTIVE POWERS.

McK has contract obligations to existing customers, and this is their way out. Many large hospitals caught on to this titanic, and left for the better alternatives: Epic and Cerner.

Any thoughts on what EIS folks think of this sale to Allscripts? Any more layoffs coming your way? Will Allscripts really benefit this purchase?

McKesson has never been a software company. And, as we've seen over the years with HzERM and Paragon and a host of others, it has no idea how to build professional software. It's better for everyone that McKesson goes back to dealing drugs. It's the only thing they're good at.

Allscripts will likely do what they can to make the Paragon product better, but eventually they'll be overwhelmed by the overall complexity of all the applications. It seems reasonable to assume that they're betting the future of their entire company on making Paragon their premier product. It's likely that they'll fail.

Layoffs? Absolutely. Allscripts appears to be a smaller clone of EIS, complete with their own off-shore team that bungles their software code. One can only hope that Nimrod and his buddies don't come with the software.
