Our solutions are designed with both the patient and provider in mind. We work with physicians and clinicians to develop an interface experience that allows the focus to remain on patient care, resulting in more informed diagnoses and treatments. We personalize each new agency relationship, empowering stakeholders to develop the right enterprise processes and governance strategy from the start.
Cerner is proud to partner with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to create a completely integrated health record to provide veterans a lifetime of seamless care. This, in conjunction with our work on the Defense Healthcare Management System Modernization, will create a single system that links both Veteran and Service member populations, to dramatically transform one of the nation's largest health care systems.
Cerner is committed to doing what's right for Veterans, developing solutions that help the VA address some of the most pressing Veteran health care priorities, including patient-owned record access, the reduction of substance and opioid abuse, identifying suicide risk, and improved treatment of PTSD. To help us, we have assembled a VA Advisory Group, made up of experts with essential insight into the veteran experience inside and outside VA.
Cerner, as part of the Leidos Partnership for Defense Health, is delivering a modern and integrated health IT solution called MHS GENESIS for the U.S. Department of Defense, supporting their health care mission to provide safe and quality care for our nation’s 9.6 million active-duty Service members, military retirees and family members.
MHS GENESIS is built using a single code set. It allows for easy access to a Service member’s comprehensive medical and health history, increased communication between providers, and supports the secure transition of health information across the spectrum of military operations around the world.
We support patient populations beyond health information technologies. Cerner currently partners with several military and Veteran outreach groups within the Kansas City community.
We also provide a dedicated military talent program that assists Veterans with their transition to a corporate career. We’re proud that hundreds of Veterans and reservists have joined our mission to transform health care.

Running a health care system as complex as the U.S. military’s is a monumental task undertaken each day by dedicated medical professionals across the armed services. Cerner, as part of the Leidos Partnership for Defense Health, is helping with that mission by delivering a modern, open and integrated health IT solution. This will ultimately result in a globally connected electronic health record (EHR), making patient data accessible at ambulatory clinics, dental clinics, hospitals and across the care continuum. Whether they receive treatment on base, at sea or in the combat theater, service members will be able to manage their health care as they move through the system and around the world. This, along with key integration points with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, will result in improved transparency and give clinicians access to the right data at the right time and place.
Earlier today, the Department of Veterans Affairs announced its decision to modernize its existing health records platform by choosing Cerner’s commercial off-the-shelf Millennium EHR solution. We are honored and humbled to be selected to lead the VA’s important project. We believe this project, in concert with ongoing progress towards implementing the Department of Defense’s MHS GENESIS system, will lead to ongoing innovation, improved interoperability and the creation of a single longitudinal health record that can facilitate the efficient exchange of data among military care facilities and the thousands of civilian health care providers where current and former service members receive health care.
