Epic launched American Well's virtual care platform in its App Orchard.

Under the partnership, providers that use an Epic EHR will be able to conduct an American Well-powered telehealth appointment directly through the patient chart.

Providers will also be able to use American Well's telemedicine carts to digitally collaborate with non-Epic medical facilities.

"Providers want access to integrated platforms designed for all types of virtual care," American Well President of Customer Solutions Mike Baird said in a news release. "With App Orchard, we can provide their users with telehealth opportunities within their existing workflows, supporting the success of virtual care programs for both the provider and the patient alike.”
