On DoD

Federal News Radio Defense Reporter Jared Serbu speaks one-on-one and in depth with the people responsible for managing the inner workings of the federal government's largest department, and those who know it best.


DoD's new health record forcing broader IT upgrades throughout military health system

The military health system recently marked the successful installation of its new electronic health record at DoD's first four pilot sites in the Pacific Northwest. But the process is nowhere near as simple as ripping out the old electronic heath record systems and replacing them with a new one. The more than 100 sites yet to receive MHS Genesis still have to go through a months-long preparation process involving new hardware, software, and network capabilities to support the new EHR. Col. Kevin Seeley, the Defense Health Agency's deputy chief information officer joins us to talk about those initiatives: Desktop to Datacenter and the Medical Community of Interest.
