ABSTRACT

Electronic Health Records: Additional DOD Actions Could Improve Cost and Schedule Estimating for New System, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 844KB]

From the Highlights: "DOD operates one of the nation's largest health care systems providing health care to about 9.6 million beneficiaries. It relies on multiple legacy electronic health record systems to create, maintain, and manage patient health information. DOD determined that these systems, implemented over the past three decades, require modernization and replacement with a comprehensive, real-time electronic health record, MHS [Military Health System] GENESIS. [...] GAO [Government Accountability Office] is making two recommendations to DOD that it develop reliable cost and schedule estimates for the MHS GENESIS program that are consistent with GAO-identified best practices. DOD concurred with GAO's recommendations."
