Federal Electronic Health Record Modernization (FEHRM) Program

​FCW executive editor Adam Mazmanian reports the National Defense Authorization Act passed the House on 12 July 2019 with two amendments designed to promote greater joint oversight of the electronic health records modernization programs at the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. [NOTE:  follow the link above to FCW.  Click through the ad to see the article's content.] The amendments outline the authority to be delegated to a joint DOD-VA board being established to help oversee the projects and sets deadlines and milestones for achieving interoperability between DOD and VA systems.

DOD and VA both contracted to use software from Cerner [NASDAQ CERN, N Kansas City, MO] to remake their health records systems.  VA is replacing its homegrown Vista system through a $10 billion contract with Cerner.  DOD, under a $5.4 billion contract with Leidos and Cerner, is already rolling out the Cerner-based system called MHS Genesis, currently in multiple Pacific Northwest facilities.

MHS GENESIS, the new electronic health record for the Military Health System (MHS), provides enhanced, secure technology to manage  service members, veterans, and their families health information. MHS GENESIS integrates inpatient and outpatient solutions that will connect medical and dental information across the continuum of care, from point of injury to the military treatment facility.
