Clarus Group 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).
“As a veteran-owned business, we are honored and humbled to be a part of this amazing team and to assist the VA in improving the delivery of care to our nation’s veterans,” said Brian Crews CEO, Clarus Group. “In order to sustainably improve the veteran experience, the VA will need both a seamless and integrated technology solution as well as an operational transformation. This will involve organizational change management, process optimization, data management, end user training, and advanced analytics. Clarus Group looks forward to collaborating with Cerner, the VA, and the rest of the EHRM team to navigate these efforts, and ultimately improve the patient experience for veterans and their families.”
In addition to Cerner, Clarus Group 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 Clarus Group 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 a 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.
Clarus Group 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.
