William Tinston, program executive officer for Defense Healthcare Management Systems, discusses what they’ve learned in testing the MHS GENESIS system, and how the new record will benefit service members throughout their careers.

Phase two of the MHS Genesis program starts on the first weekend in September. The electronic health record program will roll out in multiple healthcare centers across the country. William Tinston, program executive officer for Defense Healthcare Management Systems, says that they’ve learned a lot from prior tests about both the system and training people to use it.

“We took an IT perspective instead of a functional perspective, in an understanding that we’re supporting a clinical mission here. What we’ve done this time… we got the clinical workflows right,” Tinston said. “We trained the clinical workflows so that people are ready to do their jobs. Instead of ‘Here’s how a tool works,’ here’s what you’re going to be doing in this new environment.”
