Plano, Texas – Oct. 3, 2018 – MedSys Group announced today it is joining Cerner, a global leader in healthcare technology, and other industry leaders and innovators to help make seamless care available to the nation’s veterans. This newly formed team announced by Cerner will bring extensive experience in large enterprise systems and commercial sectors to modernize the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) electronic health record (EHR).
“MedSys Group is extremely honored to be part of this program and serve such a deserving population as our veterans. MedSys’ focus will be to enhance the training and support functions of the project, as well as contribute to the clinical transformation and end user adoption as the program is rolled out. Our team is thrilled to be part of this historic initiative alongside Cerner and the partnership”.
– Mark Embry, MedSys Group Co-Founder
In addition to Cerner, MedSys Group will join Leidos, Guidehouse, Accenture, Henry Schein, Inc., AbleVets LLC, MicroHealth, ProSource360 and 17 additional small businesses – many of which are veteran-owned – to form the team that will provide experience and expertise to the VA implementation.
“We are proud MedSys Group will be part of this important team of industry leaders that will shape the future of care for veterans through a modern EHR system,” said Travis Dalton, president, Cerner Government Services. “We will work together to address the needs and capabilities that are in the best interest of the VA. Our veterans deserve the highest quality care and with this team, we look forward bringing a modern, seamless system to those who have served our country.”
In May, Cerner announced an historic agreement and VA made the program one of their top priorities to improve care for veterans. Using technology that has been deployed successfully at Department of Defense (DoD) medical facilities and thousands of provider sites globally, Cerner plans to provide seamless care across the VA’s high-performing integrated network, including VA facilities, community providers and DoD facilities.
MedSys Group will join Cerner and other VA EHR modernization members to outline the strategy during the Cerner Health Conference, Oct. 8-11, in Kansas City, Mo.
