The DHMSM program oversees the acquisition of off-the-shelf solutions to modernize the Military Health System (MHS) EHR system and establish seamless medical data sharing. CGI’s work on this task order includes test planning, execution, analysis and reporting to provide sufficient operational readiness) findings, conclusions and recommendations for the Director, Operational Test & Evaluation (DOT&E) in support of operational decision-making.
The MHS EHR system will unify and increase accessibility of integrated, evidenced-based healthcare delivery and decision-making, while supporting the availability of longitudinal medical records, or medical histories, for 9.6 million military beneficiaries and approximately 153,000 MHS personnel globally. When military personnel and their families move every few years, having medical records available electronically makes it easier for healthcare professionals to treat them when they seek medical care. “We are honored to be working on one of the largest medical healthcare systems globally that directly affects our warfighters and their families,” said Pat Dougherty, CGI Senior Vice President for Defense Programs. “This system will help make their medical histories available wherever they are stationed. CGI has maintained an outstanding record of performance with JITC, and this effort will allow us to continue to support the military’s healthcare modernization goals.”
