DoD's CAPT James Ellzy on MHS GENESIS and What's Next for Military Health Care: The Cerner Podcast, Ep. 45
MHS GENESIS, the military’s modernized electronic health record system, is live at several sites included in the Initial Operating Capability (IOC) deployment phase of the U.S. military’s defense health record modernization. At the end of 2017, Madigan Army Medical Center will be the fourth go-live site in the IOC.
The IOC region was chosen by the Department of Defense as a testing ground for the new MHS GENESIS system because of the range in size of facilities, from a 25-patient bed clinic to a full-scale military hospital, and because of its inclusion of Army, Navy and Air Force. MHS GENESIS, which leverages Cerner’s commercial EHR, will change the way care is delivered in the military – not only for the patient, but also for the end users, including practitioners and clinicians.
