CLEVELAND, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/14 -- McKesson Medical-Surgical and OnShift today announced an agreement to bring labor management solutions for cost control, greater efficiencies and improved quality to long-term care providers.

By focusing on staffing and labor management, a provider's number one expense, they can achieve the operational, financial, and quality improvements necessary to thrive in today's market.

"With changing resident needs and increasing acuity, staffing properly each and every shift, within a fixed labor budget, is a challenge. We are excited to team with OnShift to help provide our Long Term Care customers with a solution that helps them manage their staff scheduling and labor costs," said Sean Riley, Vice President, Extended Care Marketing, McKesson Medical-Surgical. "McKesson Medical-Surgical is pleased to bring solutions like this to our customers to help them reduce costs and save time so they can focus on providing more care."
