Apprio Teams with Intellect Solutions, Awarded Contract to Transition Military Health System EHR to DHA Health Information Technology Directorate

Company to Develop Transformation Plan and Handle Project Support for MHS GENESIS EHR Office Transfer

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Nov 8, 2017) - Apprio, a leading provider of specialized technology solutions, particularly for the health, defense and homeland security markets, today announced it has been awarded Defense Health Agency (DHA) work to transition the Military Health System (MHS) electronic health record (EHR) to the DHA Health Information Technology Directorate.

"For nearly two decades, Apprio has worked with federal agencies to transform health IT and implement EHRs and other health program solutions to benefit patients across the continuum of care," says Darryl Britt, Apprio's president. "Our work to transition the MHS EHR builds on our federal health IT portfolio of solutions and will enable the military to integrate workflows and standardized EHR exchange to advance military health and healthcare reform."
