Cerner President Zane Burke’s comments on DHMSM
"I'd like to comment on the recent announcement on the Defense Healthcare Management System Modernization project, referred to as dim sum (DHMSM). We are pleased that last week the Department of Defense announced its decision to award the contract to Leidos, Inc. As you know, the Leidos Partnership for Defense Health includes Cerner as the core EHR supplier. We are honored, humbled, and excited to be a part of the team that won what we believe was the most objective and comprehensive evaluation of technology platforms and solutions ever conducted. We now have the opportunity for Cerner's suite of integrated solutions to replace the DoD's legacy health IT system in its 55 hospitals and more than 350 clinics worldwide, as well as in ships, submarines and other locations in the theater of military operations.
We're pleased to be partners with Leidos, Accenture, Henry Schein and a number of small business partners in making this important transition for our military health system and its 9.6 million beneficiaries. Intermountain Healthcare is also a strategic partner and is providing clinical governance of solutions and workflow.
