Cerner establishes advisory group on veterans healthcare

Cerner revealed the roster for its advisory group on veterans healthcare Sept. 5.

The advisory group — comprised of former government, military and private sector leaders — will provide guidance to Cerner as it begins its work on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' Electronic Health Record Modernization program Sept. 5.

Former U.S. Sen. and Nebraska Gov. Bob Kerrey, D, who is also a veteran of the U.S. Navy, will chair the advisory group. Other members include former VA CIO Roger Baker, former ONC director Karen DeSalvo, MD, and former VA chief technology officer Marina Martin.

"As we work with VA to modernize its health record system, the incredibly accomplished members of this group will provide advice and guidance on our approach to improving every veterans' experience across the system of care — both within VA and with community providers," said Travis Dalton, senior vice president of Cerner.
