FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. -- The 92nd Medical Group celebrated the second anniversary of Military Health System GENESIS’ introduction to Fairchild by hosting a cake cutting ceremony Feb. 8 at Fairchild’s Medical Center.

Fairchild’s 92nd MDG was selected as the first Department of Defense medical clinic to launch this $11 billion electronic health record system and has successfully used the program since Feb. 7, 2017. 

“It’s exciting being on the cutting edge for the DOD and Air Force as an initial operating center testing the capabilities of MHS GENESIS,” said Air Force Col. Michaelle Guerrero, 92nd MDG commander. “Being at the forefront for MHS GENESIS the past two years and knowing the power behind this system, we are able to put it into action and have a positive impact on our ability to provide the highest level of care for our beneficiaries.” 

MHS GENESIS is a Department of Defense-wide electronic health record and management system that combines health records from base, civilian and Veteran’s Affairs primary care providers, pharmacies, laboratories and dental clinics into one network. 

“Prior to MHS GENESIS we had a variety of systems used throughout many different medical systems,” said Air Force Tech. Sgt. Adrianne Boman, 92nd MDG executive assistant. “MHS GENESIS consolidates those systems into one central hub for electronic health records.” 

Data shows that initial fielding sites, like Fairchild, that document patient care in MHS GENESIS continue to show increased operating capabilities in areas such as referrals processed, patients seen, prescriptions filled, and secure messaging. In addition, the DOD established continuous cyber assessments to secure the electronic exchange of medical and patient data.

“MHS GENESIS has so many tools and resources that we are able to tap into,” said Air Force Capt. Neal Alexander, 92nd Medical Operations Squadron pediatric clinical nurse. “Health care providers now have the ability to be more flexible with their own schedules, increasing the capability to accommodate their patients’ needs.”

Initial fielding sites, including Fairchild, continue to see improvements in efficiency, resulting in providers better leveraging technology to deliver safe, high quality healthcare.

“Using MHS GENESIS has improved the fluidity of patient care as well as the interconnectivity with our industry partners,” Boman said. “The experience we are gaining from using it has made providing patient care and keeping track of health records so much easier.”

MHS GENESIS has reached several milestones and is declared “initial operational capable.” This has led to the approval of deploying MHS GENESIS to the first wave of military treatment facilities which is set to include Naval Air Station Lemoore, Travis Air Force Base, Mountain-Home Air Force Base, and the U.S. Army Health Clinic Presidio.
