Defense Health Agency Director expresses concern over impending Cerner implementation

The Cerner, Leidos and Accenture team won the Department of Defense IT overhaul contract in 2015, but there remain some concerns over the project. Vice Adm. Raquel Bono, director of the Defense Health Agency, noted a number of concerns in a recent Politico article.

Director Bono is worried about how the EHR's end-users will be forced to change how they interact with patients, according to the report. Additionally, she expressed concern over whether the DoD's computers and tablets would be able to handle the latest software from Cerner.

"That's one of the things we have to look at — whether or not the end-user devices are robust enough to support the DHMSM," she said, according to the report.
