Aurora QuickCare clinics will move to Walgreens, integrate with Epic EHR

Early next year, Milwaukee-based Aurora Health Care will move its QuickCare clinics to Walgreens and integrate them with its Epic EHR system, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Through the move, Aurora will close eight of its current QuickCare clinics in eastern Wisconsin, replace five in the Milwaukee area and open three in the Oshkosh and Green Bay area.

Because the clinics will be integrated with Aurora's Epic EHR, nurse practitioners at the QuickCare clinics will have access to Aurora patients' records and the records of other hospitals that utilize Epic.

"This will be fully a functional Aurora clinic," said Aurora Health Care Medical Group President-elect Jeff Bahr.

Aurora's Walgreens QuickCare clinics will be open seven days a week.
