Patients can take steps now to prepare for MHS GENESIS ‘Go Live’

The San Antonio Market, to include Brooke Army Medical Center, Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center and the outlying clinics, will transition to MHS GENESIS on Jan. 22, 2022.

MHS GENESIS is the new electronic health record for the Military Health System. The health record delivers data to healthcare teams wherever patients receive treatment -- whether it’s at a medical facility within the Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs or the U.S. Coast Guard. This record will stay with service members from the time of their enlistment through veteran status.

“When fully deployed, MHS GENESIS will provide a single medical and dental record for service members, veterans and their families,” said Army Lt. Col. Dorian Walton, BAMC’s MHS GENESIS site lead.
