DoD Launches Second Batch of MH Genesis EHR System Implementation

The Defense Department has released the MH Genesis electronic health records system at a second set of locations, Federal Times reported Saturday.


MH Genesis was deployed at four new sites: Naval Health Clinic Lemoore, Presidio of Monterey and Travis Air Force Base, all located in California, plus Idaho’s Mountain Home AFB.


Stacy Cummings, chief of the program executive office at Defense Healthcare Management Systems, said issues that came up during the initial deployment of the records system include lack of user preference and design errors.


The EHR system is set to be installed at every military medical center during the next five years. The initial sites, also West Coast military facilities, will resolve identified problems, the report said.
