New electronic health record coming to Naval Health Clinic Patuxent River
NAVAL HEALTH CLINIC PATUXENT RIVER, Md. —
MHS GENESIS, the new electronic health record for the Military Health System, is coming to Naval Health Clinic Patuxent River on March 25.
The new system will improve access, safety and quality of care for active duty services members, retirees and their families. However, patients should prepare for some short-term growing pains during implementation, said Capt. Jeremy Hawker, the clinic’s commanding officer. They will include longer wait times initially and a temporary reduction in available appointments – by up to 65% from approximately March 18-May 21. Additional appointments will be added if the transition goes smoothly, as planned.
