The Defense Health Agency (DHA) has selected Cerner to replace the Military Health System’s (MHS) existing anatomic pathology laboratory information system. As part of the implementation, Cerner will deploy its CoPathPlus’s comprehensive anatomic pathology (AP) workflow automation, management reporting and quality-assurance functionality throughout all Department of Defense (DoD) military treatment facility anatomic pathology laboratories around the world. CoPathPlus has earned the KLAS: Software and Services Category Leader title for four consecutive years.
“We are proud to be the DoD’s anatomic pathology laboratory solutions provider of choice,” said Travis Dalton, vice president, Cerner in a statement. “Having worked with the Military Health System for more than 20 years, we understand the value of providing the DoD with the best health care IT solutions possible.”
The DHA enables the Army, Navy and Air Force medical services to provide a medically ready force to Combatant Commands in both peacetime and wartime. The DHA supports the delivery of integrated, affordable, and high quality health services to MHS beneficiaries and is responsible for driving greater integration of clinical and business processes across the MHS.
The deal is separate from the $11B DoD EHR ten-year contract that is expected to be awarded by this summer.
