Travis Dalton, the president of Cerner Government Services, has been named WashingtonExec’s Pinnacle Award Healthcare Industry Executive of the Year.

In its second year, the annual Pinnacle Awards luncheon was held Oct. 31 at the Ritz Carlton Tysons Corner. The luncheon drew over 525 GovCon leaders and professionals, and showcased exemplary GovCon leadership in industry and government.

Under Dalton’s leadership, CGS has grown significantly while working to help both the departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs modernize their health care records systems. DOD’s Defense Healthcare Management Systems Modernization program and VA’s Electronic Health Record Modernization program are two of the largest and most complex government modernization efforts in recent history, affecting nearly 20 million service members, veterans and their families.

Dalton’s other work has included serving as a member of the Military Committee on the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and the Host Committee for the Elizabeth Dole Hidden Heroes Foundation. Dalton was a 2018 WashingtonExec Pinnacle Award Finalist for Healthcare Executive of the Year.

Dalton joined Cerner in August 2001 and has since served in a number of executive roles focusing on finance, sales and consulting. He holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from Wright State University and a master’s in public administration from Ohio State University.
