WHAT IT MEANS AND WHY IT’S IMPORTANT — The fact that CVS Caremark’s MinuteClinic has partnered with Allscripts to leverage its electronic health record system helps further position MinuteClinic for future growth and clinical collaboration.

As the article stated, MinuteClinic will transition from its existing proprietary electronic medical record system to the Allscripts MyWay Electronic Health Record — a move that makes MinuteClinic part of one of the largest networks of healthcare providers using EHRs.
Furthermore, the partnership with Allscripts, whose current clients include some of the healthcare systems with which MinuteClinic has affiliated, positions the retail-based clinic operator well for future growth and clinical collaboration.
MinuteClinic continues to evolve and play a greater role in the U.S. healthcare system with its expanding footprint, broadening scope of service and growing roster of strategic affiliations.
Over the past few years, MinuteClinic has formed affiliations with a number of health systems. It currently has affiliations with more than a dozen healthcare systems, with the most recent being HCA’s TriStar Health, the largest health system in Middle Tennessee. That partnership was announced on Friday.
As the clinic operator eyes expansion, ensuring seamless, private and reliable access to patient information and also providing the opportunity to share patient treatments electronically with the patient’s primary care physician will only become increasingly vital.
