The Department of Defense’s new electronic health record, MHS GENESIS, was initially deployed Feb. 7, 2017.  MHS GENESIS is a single, integrated medical and dental electronic health record that will fully deploy at all military hospitals and clinics by 2022.
“MHS GENESIS will transform the delivery of healthcare and advance data sharing through a modernized electronic health record for service members, veterans, and their families,” said Stacy Cummings, the program executive officer for the Program Executive Office, Defense Healthcare Management Systems.
Cummings spoke at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2017 conference in Orlando, Florida, Feb. 21, 2017. The conference brings together approximately 40,000 health care IT professionals, clinicians, executives, and vendors from around the world. She was joined on stage by Dr. Paul Cordts, the electronic health record functional champion for the Military Health System, and Air Force Col. Richard Terry, acting MHS chief information officer.
Cummings said the rollout of MHS GENESIS is going as expected, and soon will give the entire MHS a modern, secure, and connected system that replaces legacy health care information systems.
“We deployed at Fairchild two weeks ago. We’re very excited about that deployment – the success we’re having there and the lessons learned – we’re going to take [those lessons] from Fairchild and use them as we deploy to our next IOC [initial operating capability] sites and then again as we deploy nationwide and then worldwide,” said Cummings. “We are following a path of going from our smallest to our largest deployment, so we can again take the lessons learned from each deployment so we can make the next deployment even more successful, efficient, and streamlined.”
Cordts pointed out this will be the first major upgrade to health documentation for the MHS in more than a decade and included stakeholders from all of the services. He sees MHS GENESIS as more than a change in documentation; it is a transformation of how the MHS does business as a whole.
Cordts said MHS GENESIS will allow the MHS to collapse more than 50 legacy systems into one. “We’re looking very carefully at these clinical business systems, trying to understand what data exchanges, systems, or interfaces we need to take care of individual patients sitting in front of us.”
Terry said MHS GENESIS was not created in a vacuum. More than 800 subject matter experts, from doctors to nurses to information technologists, participated in the creation process. That process was led by several guiding principles, including:
  • Base decisions on what is best for the MHS as a whole – not a single individual area
  • Design a patient-centric system focusing on quality, safety and patient outcomes that meet readiness objectives
  • Configure an off-the-shelf electronic product and not build one from the ground up
  • Standardize clinical and business processes across the military services and the MHS
“With these principles in mind, MHS is consolidating the IT infrastructure so there’s one network, one data center, and one configuration and strategy to make sure everyone is on the same page,” said Terry. “As the delivery platform is standardized MHS-wide, the medical community will see one secure and reliable network.”
“I think that we’re going to be amazed and impressed when we figure out all the decision support and analytic data that we’re going to get out of this modernization,” said Cummings.
