Cerner’s (Nasdaq: CERN) government services business has received a potential $93.6M delivery order to help the Department of Veterans Affairs deploy modernized electronic health records systems at additional VA medical centers.

VA said in an award notice posted Monday on the beta SAM website that the order covers “wave three” EHR deployment at Anchorage VAMC in Alaska and Boise VAMC in Idaho.

The order, which has a base value of $78.7M, is meant to support modernization efforts for the Veterans Integrated Service Network.

Work under the agreement is slated to conclude by Jan. 30, 2022.

In 2018, Cerner secured a potential $10B contract to support EHR deployment efforts aimed to simplify the exchange of medical records between the VA, Department of Defense and other community health care providers.

The health technology maker also collaborates with Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) on the Pentagon's MHS Genesis program.
