800# Gorilla

I suspect that if Wal-Mart is jumping in then this EHR thing may be getting some traction. Or as a friend said to me, "the gorilla has entered the room."

Via iHealthBeat.com:

This spring, Wal-Mart will partner its Sam's Club division with Dell and eClinicalWorks to begin offering low-cost electronic health record systems to physicians, the New York Times reports.

Under the initiative, Dell will provide health care providers with the option for a desktop or tablet personal computer, while eClinicalWorks will contribute the EHR and practice management software that would be used for Internet-based patient billing and registration.

Wal-Mart will use its "buying power" to acquire discounts for both the software and hardware, the Times reports.
