Leidos Partnership Continues MHS GENESIS Overseas Deployment in Second Planned International Wave
Leidos Partnership continues successful international MHS GENESIS Electronic Health Record deployment with Wave Pacific
(RESTON, Va.) Nov. 16, 2023 – The Leidos Partnership for Defense Health (LPDH) today announced it successfully delivered the MHS GENESIS electronic health record (EHR) to an additional 7,000 Department of Defense (DOD) clinicians and providers as part of a second Outside of the Contiguous United States (OCONUS) deployment (Waves OKINAWA/S. KOREA). The current EHR deployment spans 10 Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs) across Asia. The Pacific waves follow successful deployments across European MTFs in September 2023 and deployment to all primary state-side DOD facilities earlier this year.
“We’re thrilled to continue our successful global roll-out of the MHS GENESIS electronic health care record system,” said Liz Porter, Leidos Health Group President. “Last month, our Partnership completed Wave Europe and now we’re pleased to deploy to Okinawa, South Korea and other locations across the Pacific Rim. We look forward to 100% system deployment early next year when the system goes live at the joint DOD-Veterans Affairs Lovell Federal Health Care Center.”
LPDH designed and developed MHS GENESIS, the Military Health System’s new EHR system, and has been providing program management and technical expertise to the Program Executive Office Defense Healthcare Management Systems since 2015.
With this latest overseas DOD wave deployment, the MHS GENESIS system is now operational at over 3,700 locations and now reaches over 183,000 users and 7.4 million DOD beneficiaries. MHS GENESIS is 98% deployed to DOD garrison facilities.
“We’re proud to complete yet another successful deployment,” noted Chris Ruefer, Deputy Program Executive Officer for DHMS. “In addition to achieving full global deployment by early next year, we continue to optimize patient and provider experiences, to include virtual health enhancements planned for the future.”
This deployment marked the last of 23 MHS GENESIS waves, with each wave targeting a specific region and the DOD utilizing lessons learned from prior waves to maximize subsequent wave efficiencies. DOD will complete MHS GENESIS deployment to garrison facilities in 2024.
