“We are excited to collaborate with Cerner and the thought leaders across this team to create a single longitudinal health record across DoD, VA and commercial health care providers,” said Scott McIntyre, Chief Executive Officer of Guidehouse. “Helping veterans get the care they need is the aim of this collaboration and we are proud to be a part of this team.”
Guidehouse (formerly PwC Public Sector LLP) will provide enterprise change management, communication and clinical transformation services to Cerner by leveraging diverse health care professionals experienced in large scale commercial and federal modernization initiatives.
In addition to Cerner, Guidehouse will join Leidos, Accenture, Henry Schein, Inc., AbleVets LLC, MicroHealth, ProSource360 and 17 additional small businesses – many of which are veteran-owned – to form the team that will provide experience and expertise to the VA implementation.
“We are proud Guidehouse will be part of this important team of industry leaders that will shape the future of care for veterans through a modern EHR system,” said Travis Dalton, president, Cerner Government Services. “We will work together to address the needs and capabilities that are in the best interest of the VA. Our veterans deserve the highest quality care and with this team, we look forward to bringing a modern, seamless system to those who have served our country.”
In May, Cerner announced an historic agreement and VA made the program one of their top priorities to improve care for veterans. Using technology that has been deployed successfully at Department of Defense (DoD) medical facilities and thousands of provider sites globally, Cerner plans to provide seamless care across the VA’s high-performing integrated network, including VA facilities, community providers and DoD facilities.
Guidehouse will join Cerner and other VA EHR modernization members to outline the strategy during the Cerner Health Conference, Oct. 8-11, in Kansas City, Mo.
