Cerner Corporation recently added another major contract to its portfolio.
The company announced in June that it will develop an electronic health record (EHR) system for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The VA decision followed months of debate over whether the agency should go with a new system or try to upgrade its old recordkeeping.
The VA contract follows an earlier Cerner agreement with the Department of Defense and will use the same system, which began operation earlier this year.
Cerner did not announce the value of the contract or other partners who might join the development.
