Walgreens Implements EHR

August 22, 2012

Walgreens (WAG) (WAG) is deploying Greenway’s EHR solution to more closely integrate the healthcare services Walgreens offers in its stores.

The EHR is currently in more than 200 Walgreens stores, with chainwide rollout to its nearly 8,000 locations planned to be completed by the end of summer 2013.

The WellHealth EHR, is part of the Walgreens HealthCloud initiative that supports the transformation of its traditional drugstores to health and daily living destinations. The WellHealth EHR will deliver to Walgreens pharmacy staff a single patient view capturing their immunization and health testing history with their prescription profile. Once rollout is complete, Walgreens pharmacy staff will have up-to-date patient immunization and health testing information combined with pharmacy information regardless of the Walgreens location where a patient received the service. The EHR also makes it possible for customers to schedule appointments and supports real-time medical billing.

The WellHealth EHR scalable functionality supports additional pharmacy, health and wellness services in the future, including integration with electronic prescribing and data exchange that tracks patients throughout the care continuum.
