Cerner Receives $140M VA EHR Interface Support Order

Jeff Brody

Cerner (Nasdaq: CERN) will provide additional interface support to the Department of Veterans Affairs' Office of Electronic Health Record Modernization under a four-year, $139.9M task order, FedHealthIT reported Wednesday.

The order falls under a potential $10B contract awarded last year to replace the VA's legacy EHR system with the same  commercial platform adopted by the Department of Defense.

OEHRM oversees the deployment and maintainance of health information technology tools for the department.

Cerner designed its system to support data exchange between VA and DoD users.
