1 min read

The Department of Defense will roll out in September its new electronic health records system to four additional bases in California and Idaho, the Military website reported Wednesday.

DoD will field the Cerner-built MHS Genesis EHR system at three California-based sites – Travis Air Force Base, Army Health Clinic Presidio and Naval Air Station Lemoore – and at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho, effective Sept. 7.

“We changed the training strategy. We didn’t get that right the first time,” Tinston said. “We have created a change management process, and the other thing is infrastructure. We now have six months prior to going live at a site to have the infrastructure updated.”

William Tinston, program executive officer for Defense Healthcare Management Systems, said some of the issues that were uncovered during the testing of the system in 2017 have been addressed. The report said MHS Genesis will go online at seven more locations by June 2020 and will be deployed at remaining sites in the next four years.
