Defense Health Agency Seeks Industry Comment on MHS Genesis Sustainment

The Defense Health Agency has issued a request for information regarding a 10-year follow-on contract for the $5.5 billion Military Health System Genesis, the Department of Defense’s electronic health record management program.

According to the notice posted on SAM .gov, the DOD Healthcare Management System Modernization program office wants the private sector to provide input on best practices for managing cloud-based health data, interoperability strategies and user training. It also seeks to learn what scale of integration companies have used to sustain commercial information technology systems within the DOD and whether they have the technical capacity to support MHS Genesis.

Leidos secured a prime spot on the initial MHS Genesis contract in 2015 and led a team that included health care firms Cerner, Accenture and Henry Schein. The EHR system’s rollout is expected to complete in 2023 with the ordering period set to finish in 2025, FCW reported.

Earlier in April, Leidos revealed that MHS Genesis has been deployed at more than 2,700 locations following its setup at nine military treatment facilities around the National Capital Region.
