Cerner Corp. an­nounced last week that it won a U.S. Army con­tract for pathol­ogy depart­ment lab soft­ware.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

Cerner and three oth­ers are vy­ing for a much larger con­tract for an elec­tronic health-record sys­tem across the Mil­i­tary Health Sys­tem. Cerner’s catch is a $16.3 mil­lion, five-year con­tract for its anatom­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory soft­ware sys­tem. But the De­fense Health Agency, a sep­a­rate con­tract­ing au­thor­ity, is still de­cid­ing which of three ven­dors will win the De­fense Healthcare Man­age­ment Sys­tems Mod­ern­iza­tion pro­gram (DHMSM). That 10-year con­tract calls for the pur­chase, in­stal­la­tion and sup­port of an off-the-shelf EHR that will re­place a hodge­podge sys­tem now used by the U.S. mil­i­tary at 56 hos­pi­tals and more than 300 clin­ics world­wide.
