Leidos Team Deploys DoD EHR System to Four More Facilities; Jonathan Scholl Quoted

A Leidos-led (NYSE: LDOS) partnership has expanded the deployment of a new electronic health record system to four military health facilities in California and Idaho.

The Leidos Partnership for Defense Health fielded the MHS Genesis EHR system at Travis Air Force Base, Presidio of Monterey and Naval Health Clinic Lemoore in California and at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho, the company said Monday.

LDPH consists of Leidos, Accenture (NYSE: ACN), Cerner (Nasdaq: CERN) and Henry Schein One as core partners as well as 30 supporting businesses. The Pentagon awarded the team a potential 10-year, $4.3B contract in 2015 to integrate a commercial EHR system across the Military Health System.

“Our team is honored and committed to delivering the MHS GENESIS system to military treatment facilities around the world,” said Jonathan Scholl, president of the Leidos Health Group. “Today signifies a major step forward in the Defense Department’s noble mission to complete the largest health record modernization effort in the history of the Military Health System.”

The EHR system deployment will occur by regions in 23 waves. Each wave will last for about a year and include an average of 15 physical sites and three hospitals to help DoD gain lessons as it progresses with the EHR rollout.

LPDH completed the initial operational capability rollout of the MHS Genesis platform to military installations in the Pacific Northwest in January 2018 and plans to fully field the system by the end of 2023.
