Leidos Partnership Delivers MHS GENESIS to Level 1 Trauma Center in Texas

January 26, 2022
Team Successfully Deploys Electronic Health Record to 19,000 New Users

RESTON, Va., Jan. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Leidos Partnership for Defense Health (LPDH) today announced it successfully delivered the MHS GENESIS electronic health record to an additional 19,000+ clinicians and providers as part of its largest Wave deployment to date, spanning 100 locations in Texas.

"MHS GENESIS is now live and operational in the only Level 1 Trauma Center in the Defense Department," said Liz Porter, Leidos Health Group president. "It is a great honor knowing the system will enable clinicians and providers to continue delivering advanced care to several thousand trauma and burn patients in Central San Antonio."

LPDH developed MHS GENESIS, the Military Health System's new electronic health record, and has been providing program management and technical expertise to the Program Executive Office Defense Healthcare Management Systems (PEO DHMS) since 2015.  

The MHS GENESIS system is now operational at more than 1,300 locations with approximately 85,000 total active users — approximately 38% deployed. 

"The program has continued to operate both on schedule and on budget, despite facing unforeseen challenges due to the COVID-19 Pandemic," notes Holly Joers, PEO DHMS. "We are extremely proud of the team's continued commitment to the mission and ability to react and respond to these real-world events." 

MHS GENESIS is being deployed across the continental United States and overseas through a total of 23 waves. Each Wave will target a specific region over one year, with an average of three hospitals and numerous physical locations for each Wave. This approach enables the DOD to take full advantage of lessons learned from prior Waves to maximize subsequent Waves' efficiencies. Full deployment of MHS GENESIS is expected by the end of calendar year 2023.
