Joint Meeting: ETPMI and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL)

Join ETPMI and ORNL for "Implementing a Commercial Electronic Health Record in the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs", presented by Joel D. Bales, FACHE, PMP.

The Department of Defense (DoD) Military Health System (MHS) supports healthcare delivery for more than 9 million eligible beneficiaries, including active duty Service members and their families, retires and their families, and others. More than half of these beneficiaries receive care in MHS hospitals and clinics worldwide. In 2015, DoD awarded a $4.3 billion contract to replace multiple MHS legacy healthcare systems and data stores, developed over decades, which needed to be modernized. The DoD electronic health record (EHR) system, known as MHS GENESIS, at its core consists of Cerner Millinnium, a commercial EHR, integrated with several ancillary products to provide dental capabilities, reporting, and population health management. Subsequently, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) awarded a $10 billion sole-source contract to Cerner to implement the same commercial EHR in VA hospitals and clinics to enable seamless healthcare information sharing for veterans receiving care in MHS or VA facilities. The presentation explores performance and lifecycle management for the multi-year enterprise-wide implementation of this commercial EHR in MHS and VA healthcare facilities.

Join ETPMI and ORNL on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 in Room 140 (Bredesen Training Center), Building 5100.
