The Leidos Partnership for Defense Health announced it has delivered the MHS GENESIS electronic health record to nearly 6,000 additional clinicians and other providers as part of its most recent Wave deployment.
“Now more than ever our military needs the most advanced healthcare delivery system,” said Liz Porter, Leidos Health Group president. “We remain diligently focused on meeting the implementation schedule for this vital program and are proud of the team’s ability to continue delivering during these challenging times.”
The Leidos partnership has developed and deployed MHS GENESIS, the Military Health System’s new electronic health record, providing program management and technical expertise to the Program Executive Office Defense Healthcare Management Systems since 2015.
The program is on track to replace the military’s existing health records software with a single, common record connecting the departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Coast Guard and private sector health care providers. When fully deployed, MHS GENESIS will provide a single solution for millions of service members and their families.
MHS GENESIS is currently live and operational across 20 military treatment facility commands with approximately 20,000 active users.
“The progress to date demonstrates our team’s focus and commitment to ensuring we have the right people in the right places to get this done,” said Holly Joers, acting program executive officer for the Defense Healthcare Management Systems.
