BOWIE, Md. – June 24, 2021 – Inovalon (Nasdaq: INOV), a leading provider of cloud-based platforms empowering data-driven healthcare, today announced an expansion and extension of the long-term engagement with Walmart (NYSE: WMT) to provide cloud-based capabilities through the Inovalon ONE® Platform in its extensive network of pharmacies nationwide as part of its data-driven strategy to improve outcomes and economics for its customers.
Under the agreement, Walmart will extend its engagement into 2028 and will look to expand its use of Inovalon’s cloud-based capabilities through the Inovalon ONE® Platform by extending the use of ScriptMed® Cloud to empower the clinical care management of complex patient populations served by Walmart’s extensive nationwide network of retail pharmacies and to add additional advanced Inovalon ONE® Platform functionality.
