The Military Health System has deferred the rollout of the new electronic health record system as the MHS has called for aÂ review and and potential modificationsÂ prior to release.
The program executive office for defense healthcare management systems will examine MHS GENESIS over the next 30 days before the systemâs initial deployment in the Pacific Northwest, MHS said Tuesday.
“Weâve made significant progress developing interfaces, user-approved workflows and technical integration of the baseline operational system currently undergoing required government test processes,” said Stacy Cummings, program executive officer atÂ PEO DHMS.
“The team continues to work aggressively to complete development of interfaces, cyber security risk management, user adoption and testing activities.”
The new system is designed to centralizeÂ medical and dental records and operate with selectÂ legacy systems of the Defense Department.
MHS unveiled the name it adopted for the new EHR systemÂ in April.
