Walgreens will implement a customized electronic health record system from Greenway Medical Technologies in its nearly 8,000 pharmacies to better track all health services provided in the facilities.

The EHR is called WellHealth and Walgreens already uses the vendor’s PrimeSuite EHR in its Take Care convenient care clinics in more than 700 pharmacies. Now, WellHealth will coordinate other care in the pharmacies, as well as Take Care services, including medication records, immunizations and health tests, regardless of the Walgreens location where services were rendered.

The customized EHR also will support consumer scheduling of appointments and real-time medical billing, with electronic prescribing and data exchange functions expected in the future, according to the vendor. WellHealth is in 200 stores with implementation scheduled to be completed by the end of summer 2013.
