HERNDON, Va., Oct. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Liberty IT Solutions 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).
"Liberty is thrilled to join the Cerner EHR Modernization team and to be a part of this historic VA initiative," said Bill Greene, President and CEO of Liberty IT Solutions. "We will be joining a group of proven clinical IT innovators in an effort that will improve the experience of care for millions of Veterans and their family members. Being a part of this effort is a special honor for our company and a validation of our mission and of the value that we bring to our customers. Initially we will use our deep knowledge of legacy systems to support key tasks around data migration. We are dedicating our best and brightest to this critical effort."
In addition to Cerner, Liberty will join Leidos, Guidehouse, 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 Liberty 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.
Liberty 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.
