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

RESTON, Go., January 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Leidos Partnership for Defense Health (LPDH) today announced that it has successfully delivered the MHS GENESIS electronic health record to more than 19,000 additional clinicians and providers as part of its largest Wave deployment to date, covering 100 sites in Texas.

“MHS GENESIS is now up and running in the Department of Defense’s only Tier 1 Trauma Center,” said Liz Porter, chairman of Leidos Health Group. “It is a great honor to know that the system will allow clinicians and providers to continue to provide advanced care to many thousands of trauma and burn patients in Downtown San Antonio.”

LPDH developed MHS GENESIS, the new electronic health record for the military health system, and has been providing program management and technical expertise to the Executive Office of the Defense Healthcare Management Systems (PEO DHMS) program since 2015.

The MHS GENESIS system is now operational in over 1,300 sites with approximately 85,000 total active users, of which approximately 38% are deployed.

“The program continued to operate both on schedule and within budget, despite 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 their ability to react and respond to these real-world events.”

MHS GENESIS is being rolled out across the continent United States and overseas through a total of 23 waves. Each wave will target a specific region over a year, with an average of three hospitals and many physical locations for each wave. This approach allows DOD to take full advantage of lessons learned from previous waves to maximize the effectiveness of subsequent waves. Full deployment of MHS GENESIS is expected by the end of calendar year 2023.
