Sam’s Club, a division of Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., is partnering with eClinicalWorks (Westborough, Mass.) and Dell (Round Rock, Texas) to launch a turnkey EMR and practice management package targeted toward small physician practices.

According to the companies, the solution is designed to be scalable for growing practices. The eClinicalWorks software will be delivered through a Software as a Service model, enabling physicians to access the system via a secure Internet connection. Dell will provide hardware and site assessment, onsite technical set-up and training as well as integration of the eClinicalWorks software with the operating system, and hardware warranty support, they say.

The EMR package is now available in Virginia, Illinois and Georgia as part of a phased implementation, and is expected to be available to physicians nationwide this year, say the companies.
