Peer Experts Step Up to Support MHS GENESIS Transition at Walter Reed

By Vernishia R. Vaughn WRNMMC Command Communications

Now that MHS GENESIS, the Department of Defense’s (DOD) new electronic health record system, has been successfully implemented at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC), a dedicated group of peer experts is lending their support.

Designated by the Defense Health Agency, the peer experts, or Pay-it-Forward (PIF) team comprises military and civilian personnel throughout the Military Health System (MHS) who have already gone through the MHS GENESIS transition.
These assigned peer experts work closely with military hospitals and clinics throughout the MHS to provide training, support, and guidance as they transition and adapt to MHS GENESIS.

“We are excited to be part of Walter Reed’s transitions to MHS GENESIS,” said Joselle McLaren, Pay-it-Forward Champion team member. “As with the other military hospitals and clinics, we are committed to supporting our colleagues as they navigate this new system and continue to provide the highest quality of care to our country’s service members, veterans, and their families.”

MHS GENESIS is a critical component of the DOD’s efforts to modernize and improve medical readiness across the MHS. With the support of the Pay-it-Forward team for the next two weeks, the staff here at Walter Reed are well-positioned to take full advantage of what this new electronic health record system offers.
