JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas –
After months of training and preparation, the San Antonio Market, to include Brooke Army Medical Center and Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center, went live with MHS GENESIS on Jan. 22.
MHS GENESIS is the Military Health System’s new electronic health record system being deployed to military hospitals and clinics around the world. The MHS GENESIS system is the centerpiece of a larger transformation to securely standardize, integrate and manage medical records across the Defense Department and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
"It has been a tremendous undertaking to be the largest MHS GENESIS implementation wave within the Military Health System,” said Air Force Brig. Gen. Jeannine M. Ryder, 59th Medical Wing commander and San Antonio Market director. “Our medics are engaged, positive and flexible while adapting to this new electronic medical record.”
