B3 Group, Inc. Joins Cerner, Technology and System Integration Leaders to Modernize Veterans’ Electronic Health Records
LEESBURG, Va. (Oct. 3, 2018) – B3 Group Inc., a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) specializing in health IT and PMO support for the federal government, 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 will bring extensive experience in large enterprise systems and commercial sectors to modernize the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) electronic health record (EHR).
“We are thrilled to partner with Cerner to provide these critical services to our nation’s veterans,” said Dwight Hunt, B3 Group president and CEO. “B3 Group has extensive experience across the VA, and this partnership will allow us to further provide our expertise to the agency.”
In addition to Cerner, B3 Group 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 B3 Group 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 bringing a modern, seamless system to those who have served our country.”
In May, Cerner announced the agreement and the 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.
B3 Group 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.
