Walmart will offer low cost alternative to adopting electronic health records

The New York Times is reporting that WalMart will begin selling a low-cost alternative to enable small medical offices to start using electronic health records. They'll have Sams Club begin to work with Dell and eClinical Works, to provide hardware, software instillation, maintenance, and training.

Marcus Osborne, senior director for health care business development at Wal-Mart, had this to say about their new offer:
“We’re a high-volume, low-cost company. And I would argue that mentality is sorely lacking in the health care industry.”
