CVS Health said it has entered into four new clinical affiliations with John Muir Health in California, University of Chicago Medical Center, Novant Health in Winston-Salem, N.C. and the University of Michigan Health System. CVS said the agreements allow for enhanced sharing of secured electronic health records, chronic disease modeling and wellness programs at CVS pharmacies and MinuteClinics.

“We are pleased to work with these exceptional health care providers throughout the country to develop collaborative programs that enhance access to patient care, improve health outcomes and lower health care costs in the communities they serve,” said Troyen A. Brennan, MD, Chief Medical Officer, CVS Health. “By allowing our electronic health records and information systems to communicate and share important information about the patients we collectively serve, we will have a more comprehensive view of our patients, which can aid in health care decision making and help ensure patients adhere to important medications for chronic diseases.”
