DOD to begin Cerner EHR rollout in December

The Department of Defense plans to start implementing its Cerner EHR in certain regions by the end of the year.

The EHR, whose name last month was revealed to be MHS GENESIS, will initially roll out at sites in the Pacific Northwest, testing out workflows, reports Politico. Stacy Cummings, a Pentagon official overseeing the contract, discussed the plans at the ONC's Annual Meeting Tuesday.

Cerner is on a team with Leidos and Accenture that was awarded a $4.3 billion contract last July to develop an EHR for the Military Health System.
