Omaha, NE – Signature Performance, Inc. 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 part of the Cerner team we are excited to continue to serve veterans, VA and the healthcare industry”, said Allen Fredrickson, President and CEO of Signature Performance. “We are strongly positioned to bring the very best people, processes and technologies together in order to modernize and meet the needs of the veterans and VA. Signature and all of our associates are committed to exceptional service that ensures the business of healthcare provides the care veterans deserve. We are eager to begin this important climb by bringing our talents, skills and experience to the Cerner team and ultimately to veterans.”
In addition to Cerner, Signature Performance 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 Signature Performance 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 to 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.
Signature Performance 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.
