Phoenix-based FastMed will deploy an Epic EHR system across its 100-plus network of urgent care clinics in North Carolina, Arizona and Texas.

FastMed, which owns and operates 109 urgent care clinics, selected Epic so it can quickly exchange patient information with surrounding hospitals and healthcare facilities that use the vendor's software.

"Because so many major health systems and other providers use Epic, it will also give us the ability to integrate more fully into regional healthcare ecosystems in order to improve population health," said Web Golinkin, FastMed CEO, according to a news release emailed to Becker's Hospital Review.

With Epic, FastMed patients will be able to access the EHR vendor's online patient portal, which allows users to view their health information, schedule appointments and pay bills, among other functions.
