Team Successfully Deploys Electronic Health Record to 14 Additional Commands
RESTON, Va., March 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Leidos Partnership for Defense Health (LPDH) today announced it successfully delivered the MHS GENESIS electronic health record to an additional 15,000 clinicians and providers as part of its largest double Wave deployment to date, spanning 14 Military Treatment Facility Commands and five states.
“We are extremely proud to have remained on schedule and on budget during this pivotal healthcare crisis we are facing as a nation,” said Liz Porter, Leidos Health Group president. “This system is continuing to provide advanced capabilities to clinicians and providers at a time when they are needed most.”
LPDH designed and developed MHS GENESIS, the Military Health System’s new electronic health record, and has been providing program management and technical expertise to the Program Executive Office Defense Healthcare Management Systems (PEO DHMS) since 2015.
The MHS GENESIS system is now operational at 1,360 locations with over 92,000 total active users — approximately 50% deployed.
“This latest deployment includes hospitals and clinics in Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, and North Carolina,” noted Holly Joers, PEO DHMS. “The team continues to gain efficiencies and improved clinical outcomes with each deployment and is on track to complete nine additional deployments through the end of 2023.”
MHS GENESIS is being deployed across the continental United States and overseas through a total of 23 waves. Each Wave will target a specific region over one year, with an average of three hospitals and numerous physical locations for each Wave. This approach enables the DOD to take full advantage of lessons learned from prior Waves to maximize subsequent Waves’ efficiencies. Full deployment of MHS GENESIS is expected by the end of calendar year 2023.
