By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

As per reports, Walmart Stores, Inc. has entered a partnership with electronic health records company Epic Systems to support all of the retailer’s health and wellness lines of business. Epic’s technology platform will offer patients a consolidated health record across care settings, multiple sources of health data, and geographies. The online portal will benefit patients to securely access their health information, schedule appointments, communicate with their providers, and pay bills on their phone or computer.
