On this episode, Mark Mellott of Cerner Government Services sits down for a conversation with General Don Scott, who served in the U.S. Army throughout the Vietnam War and rose to the rank of brigadier general. As a member of the Cerner Government Advisory Board, he is part of a distinguished group that helps us navigate the unique needs of our federal clients.

General Scott answers these questions:

  • What has been your experience with health care as a Service member and as a Veteran? What works and what needs improvement?
  • What do people need to know about the Veterans who receive care through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health system?
  • How has the Cerner Government Advisory Board evolved since its inception to better meet the needs of Veterans?
  • How will the VA Electronic Health Record Modernization program spur greater innovation and interoperability in the U.S. health care system at-large?
  • How will your role on the board help drive change for Cerner's federal partners?
