In the news...

McKesson continues its attempt to loom above the financial scandals of last
year with yet another new business division.  This new one, iMcKesson will
form an online health-care unit which will allow doctors access to real time
info to verify insurance eligibility, prescribe medication, order lab tests
and perform a range of other medical and administrative tasks.  Presently,
most of these functions are paper-based transactions in 90% of the time for
clinical biz & 60% for financial and admin tasks.  
..other MCK service divisions include:  supply management, information
technology, automation and pharmaceutical services businesses, and
electronic commerce.  

- A dividend payment of .06 is scheduled for 3 July
- The annual report was just released 13 Jun but I haven't had a chance to
review yet.  

See ya next month,
