The Defense Department has deployed a commercial-off-the-shelf electronic health record system from Cerner at Fairchild Air Force Base, near Spokane, Wash., as part of an initial operating capability.

Ultimately, the Cerner Millennium solution will serve more than 9 million DoD beneficiaries worldwide.
