Just this week, the U.S. Coast Guard announced its plans to join the Department of Defense on its MHS Genesis EHR project. With the Department of Veterans Affairs planning on tapping Cerner as well for its new EHR, it appears Cerner is the preferred vendor for federal health IT needs.

As the State Department just released an RFI for its own EHR project, it calls into question whether it makes sense for the agency to join the Cerner wave, as well. We’re wondering what do you think is the best course of action for the State Department’s EHR plans?
