  • The Florida locations will be the first Walmart Health centers to use a medical record built by health IT software giant Epic, which includes a patient portal for scheduling and bill pay.

  • Walmart has been focused on building out its omnichannel care offerings as it moves into direct healthcare delivery, leveraging telemedicine, home touchpoints, a national network of more that 5,000 brick-and-mortar stores.

  • Walmart patients will have access to telemedicine seven days a week through MeMD.

  • On Sundays, the health centers will largely conduct virtual-first visits.
