Dallas, TX – Oct. 3, 2018 – Sharpe Medical Consulting announced today it is joining Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, and other industry leaders and innovators to help make seamless care available to the nation’s veterans. This newly formed team announced by Cerner will bring extensive experience in large enterprise systems and commercial sectors to modernize the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) electronic health record (EHR).
Sharpe Medical Consulting will leverage its clinical process integration and training expertise to enhance patient outcomes and end user experience in the VA. In addition to Cerner, Sharpe Medical Consulting will join Lejdos, Guidehouse, Accenture, Google, Henry Schein, Inc., AbleVets LLC, MicroHealth, ProSource360 and 18 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 Sharpe Medical Consulting 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 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.
Sharpe Medical Consulting 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.
