Walmart Health will use Epic's EHR to engage with patients, payers and healthcare providers, the company said Sept. 27.

Four details:

  1. Epic's EHR will first be rolled out in four Walmart Health Centers opening in Florida in early 2022, according to a news release.

  2. "Our vision to provide best in class healthcare, anywhere, anytime includes a seamless experience for our customers, healthcare professional partners and associates. Leveraging best-in-class partners like Epic and their technology platform will assist us in providing a unified health record across care settings, geographies and multiple sources of health data," said Cheryl Pegus, MD, executive vice president of Walmart Health & Wellness.

  3. Epic will support all of Walmart Health's lines of business, according to the release. Alan Hutchison, vice president of population health at Epic, said patients will have a unified experience for medical, dental and virtual care.

  4. Walmart has recently made significant strides into healthcare. On Sept. 25, Walmart Wellness Day offered free COVID-19 vaccines and other immunizations at 4,700 stores nationwide. On Sept. 21, telehealth providers Doctor on Demand and Grand Rounds unveiled a partnership with several large employers including Walmart, Target and Accenture, to create a digital health program that aims to reduce health disparities in Black Americans.
