25% of the $4.3 billion DHMSM contract allocated for!

Training Key to DoD’s Cerner EHR -– August 8, 2015, By Gary Sparrow, Military EHR

The Department of Defense announced that Cerner has been awarded a coveted $4.3 billion, 10-year contract to overhaul the Pentagon’s electronic health records for millions of active military members and retirees.

Defense officials said they sought to minimize the potential for unexpected costs by insisting that all bids include the price for all system upgrades in the future along with the ability to open the contractor’s commercial system to integrate new IT modules as they become available or when DoD identifies a new mission need in its health care facilities……

G2X TAKE: The award announcement the week before last jump started recruiting efforts for dozens of firms looking to cash in on support of the Cerner/Leidos/Accenture team. As this article points out, one key area where opportunity exists is for training doctors, nurses, and support staff on the new EHR. “Fully one quarter of the funds the Pentagon is obligating are for ancillary services like training and IT support.” While physical training will be a key component, you can expect many to be pushing new approaches and technical solutions to streamline these efforts.
