JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas –
The San Antonio Market will transition to the new electronic health record system – known as MHS GENESIS – in January 2022.
The new electronic health record, shared by the Defense Department, Department of Veterans Affairs, and Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Coast Guard, delivers data to healthcare teams wherever a patient receives treatment. In the past, a patient’s medical record resided within the facility where they received care. The new shared record makes a patient's records available digitally anywhere they receive care.
MHS GENESIS is being implemented at DOD hospitals and clinics in a phased approach over the next several years.
