BURLINGTON, Mass., April 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vecna Technologies, Inc. announced today a major expansion to its Cerner integration contract in support of the Department of Veterans Affairs. The scope of Vecna's contract now includes expanded system integration with the VA's new electronic health record system, Cerner Millennium. Vecna's contract also calls for deployment and "go-live" support services at the VA's Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center in Spokane, WA. Cerner and Vecna engineering teams are working together to implement a bi-directional interface based on the "Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources" (FHIR) industry-standard protocol.
"We are honored to be supporting the VA on this important modernization program, and excited to see our involvement grow," said Deborah Theobald, CEO Vecna Technologies. "This latest contract expansion reflects the confidence that the VA and Cerner have in the Vecna team and our technology."
Vecna provides the only patient check-in and queuing system that fully integrates with the VA's new Cerner EHR.
