WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) issued the following statement after Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs David Shulkin informed him of the VA’s decision to procure the Cerner Corporation’s electronic health records (EHRs) system, MHS Genesis, to support veterans in receiving healthcare through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA):

“I applaud the VA for making this decision to fully integrate the health records for our nation’s heroes, reducing their burdens and easing their transition to civilian life after service. The Department of Defense’s leadership in the effort to modernize the electronic healthcare system in partnership with Cerner will help make certain the VA can streamline the transition from the Department of Defense to the Department of Veterans Affairs, improving the VA’s delivery of care for millions of veterans nationwide.”
