CVS Caremark's MinuteClinic to Deploy Allscripts EHR Nationally  

CVS Caremark's MinuteClinic, a retail health clinic in the United States, will transition from its existing, proprietary EMR system to the AllscriptsMyWay EHR. This transition will assist MinuteClinic in its mission of delivering high quality accessible medical care in hundreds of retail clinics across the United States.

"MinuteClinic is partnering with Allscripts to assure that we are utilizing the most advanced electronic health record platform in the market," said Andrew Sussman, MD, president of MinuteClinic and senior vice president/associate chief medical officer of CVS Caremark. "This will help support our nurse practitioners and physician assistants in continuing to meet and exceed the high standards we have set for quality and adherence to practice guidelines."

With Allscripts EHR, MinuteClinic becomes part of one of the largest networks of healthcare providers using EHRs. In addition, Allscripts' current clients include some of the prominent healthcare systems with which MinuteClinic has affiliated, positioning MinuteClinic well for future growth and clinical collaboration.

"As part of an expanding partnership, we're dedicated to helping MinuteClinic continue its high patient satisfaction rating by enabling seamless, private, and reliable access to patient information where and when it's needed and also provide the opportunity to share their treatments electronically with the patient's primary care physician," said Glen Tullman, CEO of Allscripts.
