Military Health System Postpones Rollout of New EHR System Amid Review

electronic-health-record-EHRThe Military Health System has deferred the rollout of the new electronic health record system as the MHS has called for a review and and potential modifications prior to release.

The program executive office for defense healthcare management systems will examine MHS GENESIS over the next 30 days before the system’s initial deployment in the Pacific Northwest, MHS said Tuesday.

“We’ve made significant progress developing interfaces, user-approved workflows and technical integration of the baseline operational system currently undergoing required government test processes,” said Stacy Cummings, program executive officer at PEO DHMS.

“The team continues to work aggressively to complete development of interfaces, cyber security risk management, user adoption and testing activities.”

A team that consists of Leidos, Cerner and Accenture won the Defense Department‘s contract in July 2015 to develop a consolidated EHR system across MHS.

The new system is designed to centralize medical and dental records and operate with select legacy systems of the Defense Department.

MHS unveiled the name it adopted for the new EHR system in April.
