The Kansas City, Mo.-based health IT giant Cerner has been selected by the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to replace the Military Health System's (MHS) existing anatomic pathology laboratory information system.

Cerner will issue its CoPathPlus software licenses and implement server hardware, peripheral equipment and services throughout all Department of Defense (DoD) military treatment facility anatomic pathology laboratories around the world. Financial terms have not yet been disclosed.

The DHA enables the Army, Navy and Air Force medical services to provide a medically ready force to Combatant Commands in both peacetime and wartime. “We are proud to be the DoD’s anatomic pathology laboratory solutions provider of choice,” Travis Dalton, vice president, Cerner, said in a statement. “Having worked with the Military Health System for more than 20 years, we understand the value of providing the DoD with the best health care IT solutions possible.”

This award is separate from vaunted DoD electronic health record (EHR) system contract, which is estimated to be worth $11 million. That winner will be chosen by the end of the summer, according to DoD.
