Greenway Health™ today announced the completion of the largest centralized pharmacy cloud-based electronic health record (EHR) system ever deployed, Walgreens Cloud EHR. Walgreens (NYSE: WAG) (NASDAQ: WAG) has completed its chain-wide rollout of the Greenway Health-powered EHR solution, giving pharmacy staff at all of its more than 8,200 locations a single, complete view of patients’ prescription, immunization and health testing records.
The EHR platform further enables Walgreens pharmacists to identify opportunities to close gaps in care and to share patient information with other providers, helping to ensure continuity and care coordination.
“Having a chain-wide EHR platform enhances our pharmacists’ ability to provide individualized immunization and health testing recommendations, which is key to closing gaps in patient care that exist today,” said Tim Theriault, senior vice president, chief information, innovation and improvement officer, Walgreens. “This solution helps further our mission to help patients in the communities that we serve get, stay and live well.”
Walgreens Cloud EHR operates in real-time mode and is fully interoperable with various systems within Walgreens’ operational IT infrastructure. The interoperable functionality and scale of the system supports an emerging trend in healthcare to leverage real-time electronic communication to deliver high-quality care.
“Consumers are demanding access to healthcare information, and Walgreens Cloud EHR delivers,” said Greenway® CEO Tee Green. “We’re proud to work with Walgreens to deliver a single system that extends to more than 27,000 pharmacists and can process 20,000 patient encounters per hour. This implementation points the way to electronic care coordination of the future.”
