MHS GENESIS migration to delay DGMC services

“David Grant USAF Medical Center beneficiaries at Travis Air Force Base will experience longer wait times for some services as well as fewer available appointments beginning Sept. 7 when DGMC goes live with the new Department of Defense electronic health record system, MHS GENESIS.”

“The new system will integrate inpatient and outpatient information – including active-duty dental records – make patient record systems standard across the military services and improve access to care and overall safety for beneficiaries, according to Col. (Dr.) Kristen Beals, 60th Medical Group commander…”

“The changes should not affect active-duty members to the same degree as their health conditions could affect job performance, result in a profile or being assigned to quarters…”

“The MHS GENESIS system is being deployed in waves. Travis AFB is in the first wave, along with Naval Air Station Lemoore, U.S. Army Health Clinic Presidio of Monterey, Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho.

Eventually, the Department of Veterans Affairs will integrate a similar system, allowing one health care record to follow military members when they transition from active duty, Beals said.” Read the full article here.
