VA pulling away from one EHR Modernization partner?

“The Department of Veterans Affairs has decided not to use Henry Schein’s dental health IT solution as part of its Electronic Health Record Modernization initiative.”

“Last year, the VA awarded Cerner a $10 billion contract to replace the agency’s decades-old legacy EHR system. Soon after, Cerner created a VA EHR modernization team that included dental software vendor Henry Schein. However, now the agency has taken exception to Henry Schein’s involvement…”

“Kroupa testified that after consulting with the Department of Defense, which she said uses Henry Schein’s Dentrix Enterprise product in conjunction with the military’s new Cerner EHR, the VA decided it “needed more time” to develop the required dental functionality for its own EHRM program.

“Our best course of action for our initial operating capability was to have an interface to the current dental record manager that we’re using now, and then take some time to develop a better product for us to use,” Kroupa added.” Read the full article here.

G2X TAKE: We missed this important tidbit last week, but it is certainly worth noting that one of the primary technology solution partners to Cerner on the initial EHRM bid appears to be losing their position, at least for now, as the VA decided it “needed more time” to develop the required functionality for its own EHRM program.
