The “end of the beginning” is around the corner for MHS GENESIS. The departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, along with the Coast Guard and now National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, are working together to create a single, common federal electronic health record. Bill Tinston, director of the Federal Electronic Health Record Modernization (FEHRM) Office, joins Defense Healthcare Management Systems PEO Holly Joers at HIMSS in Chicago to explain the program’s latest progress, lessons learned and how they’re working together to implement best practices at future sites. Looking ahead, DOD is focusing on improving the patient experience.
FEHRM and DHMS PEO provide the latest updates on the federal EHR rollout and discuss next steps, aimed to enhance the patient experience.
