Bonafide Management Systems announced today that it has released improved features in its integration with McKesson Corporation. The comprehensive EDI integration, which has been in place since 2013, allows Bonafide’s DME customers to improve patient satisfaction. The improved features streamline business operations by providing a fully-integrated DME environment in which to manage the complexities of the supply chain across multiple vendors.
