iKnowMed Generation 2 is a powerful web based electronic health records system built specifically for the needs of oncologists and hematologists. iKnowMed Generation 2 was developed by McKesson Specialty Health in collaboration with more than 200 oncologists who used their daily experiences to create a system that improves the overall quality of cancer care delivery. Impressively, the system is 2014 Edition certified to help practices meet Stage 1 and Stage 2 of Meaningful Use.
In addition to straightforward EHR functionality for tracking patient demographics, patient histories, e-prescribing, charge capture, and notes, iKnowMed Generation 2 supports all of the oncology-specific requirements that their customers would need. These features allow physicians to diagnose and stage cancer patients using AJCC and FIGO staging criteria and select patient’s treatment regimens from both NCCN Guidelines® and Value Pathways powered by NCCN®.
iKnowMed Generation 2 is a web-based electronic medical records system that can be accessed via the Internet and is optimized for mobile access. The standalone EHR integrates with Lynx Mobile inventory management, My Care Plus patient portal, and can interface with a number of practice management, laboratory, radiology, pathology, dictation, and notes systems, providing customers the oncology-specific features they require without requiring them to replace their existing systems. iKnowMed Generation 2 is very scalable and suitable to practices of all sizes, ranging from solo private practices to large cancer care facilities with hundreds of doctors.
McKesson Specialty Health, a division of McKesson Corporation, is committed to being on the forefront of cancer care technology. In addition to developing technology, McKesson Specialty Health runs a nationwide network of more than 1,000 physicians who participate in national clinical trials, lead cancer research initiatives, and collaborate on best practices for improving patient care.
It is fairly common for us to hear from oncologists who are frustrated by generic EHR systems that do not address oncology-specific requirements or require expensive custom programming to develop them. As a result, we often recommend iKnowMed Generation 2 to these physicians and others in search of a system well-suited for cancer care.

I liked the ease of use. I like the way the chemotherapy regimens could be changed in frequency.
Too easy to have multiple regimens with the same drugs but different frequencies duplicated.
Don't have too many people building the regimens. Have a good approval system in place.

They gave great support in getting the program going and merging old and new systems.
It tends to crash once a day, most days. There is a fun dinosaur game to play while it reboots. Be sure to save your work often.
Take time in learning the program. Educate the staff about all the possibilities and provide warm-ups/refreshers occasionally to review things that may be forgotten from the initiation of the program.
