NOAA has no timeline for Oracle Cerner EHR installation

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has no timeline for the implementation of its Oracle Cerner EHR system, Fedscoop reported Oct. 28. 

The 12,000-employee agency is required to transition to an Oracle Cerner EHR as part of the federal health records modernization program. The news comes as the Department of Veterans Affairs' delayed rollout of the Oracle Cerner EHR system affected 41,500 patients.

"The system meets the security requirements for NOAA uniformed service members' health records, and integrates with the medical care system used by all uniformed service officers," A NOAA spokesperson told Fedscoop. "No timeline for implementation is available at this stage."

The Federal Electronic Health Record Modernization Office, which is overseeing the rollout of the system across federal agencies, said deployment is targeted for summer 2023.
