Walgreens selects Epic EHR for healthcare clinics

Retail healthcare giant Walgreens plans to transition to Epic's EHR platform in its more than 400 healthcare clinics across the country.

Patrick Carroll, MD, CMO of Walgreens' Healthcare Clinics said they hope the switch to Epic will support greater care coordination, communication and interoperability with other health systems and local providers.

"As our clinics play an increasingly important role in healthcare, supporting the healthcare system, provider practices and patients' medical homes, care coordination can be critical," Dr. Carroll said. "This will benefit our patients, clinic providers and partners, and serves as an instrumental part of our strategic growth plan."

Currently, Walgreens uses its proprietary EHR.
