It's a Windows system, but it is also offered on a hosted basis.
An online demo available at the eClinicalWorks site emphasizes that this is a complete system, built for payments and pharmacy integration, with modules from the front office and back office, not just physicians.
The idea seems to be that eClinicalWorks will continue focusing on the big accounts that need integration services while Wal-Mart will focus on small practices that can pay for their gear partly with stimulus money.
The bundle will be sold exclusively through Wal-Mart's Sam's Club warehouse stores, with prices starting at $25,000 ($10,000 for each additional doctor) and maintenance payments of about $5,000/year.
Wal-Mart made the move into distribution after trying out the software at its own in-store clinics and apparently being satisfied.
Our own James Urquhart says the company has missed a great opportunity to push a SaaS model. It's true much of the software's value is delivered via SaaS but the Sam's Club bundle includes hardware many small practices lack and need.
