Leidos-led team takes another important step in the implementation of commercial software to advance the military’s healthcare system at home and abroad.

MHS GENESIS successful launch at Naval Hospital Bremerton is another important milestone in our partnership with the DoD achieving success in modernizing the military’s healthcare system.

Supporting military health objectives for three decades, Leidos has proven to be a reliable and trusted Partner to the DoD, including the MHS GENESIS program which launched in 2015.

Leidos and its core partners successfully manage the program in partnership with the DHMSM PEO  to deploy an open, modern, secure, and interoperable electronic health record (EHR) to enable our military community to receive the best care, ensure patient safety and security of information, and provide clinicians with seamless access to health data.

The successful transformation and modernization of MHS GENESIS enables patients and clinicians to capture and share health data to improve the continuity and quality of care for the 9.4 million military health system beneficiaries. The express objective of the initiative was to build and deploy MHS GENESISon a modern, modular, and open architecture that the military community, and the providers who serve them, can count on today and well into the future.

Program Success

Our partner Cerner's award-winning EHR powers our Department of Defense Healthcare Management System Modernization (DHMSM) solution and is fully integrated with the dental solution to provide a portable electronic health and dental record for each service member and their beneficiaries.

The system is successfully deployed to three bases—Fairchild, Oak Harbor, and most recently Bremerton – and associated clinics. The deployments are part of the Initial Operational Capability (IOC) rollout of MHS GENESIS to key installations across the Pacific Northwest. Fairchild served as the first opportunity to implement the system on outpatient services, while Oak Harbor was the first inpatient facility to begin the deployment of MHS GENESIS. Bremerton is a larger inpatient facility which provides an even broader range of care.

“Two keys to success on such an important, large-scale program are a steadfast focus on our customer’s mission and ensuring alignment with our customer and our partners. As the prime contractor, it’s imperative that we fully understand the customer’s requirements, are in lock step with their objectives, and  share their dedication to achieving those objectives” said Jerry Hogge, senior vice president, Leidos Defense Health.

Hogge went on to explain how these driving principals guide Leidos’ program management style. “Operating as one team made up of five core partners – Leidos / Cerner / Accenture / Henry Schein / DHMSM Program Executive Office and PM Team - the partnership built the program around three objectives; leverage technology to enhance the delivery of clinical care at military treatment facilities, address cybersecurity requirements, and deploy systems with minimal disruption during implementation.”

Partnership Built on Trust, Experience, and Proven Innovation

Rooted in 45 years of experience, the team draws on deep domain expertise in IT, cybersecurity, and systems integration in regulatory and public sector environments delivering quality program management and successful outcomes.
