MHS GENESIS is Here
On September 24, 2022 the Department of Defense’s new electronic health record (EHR), MHS GENESIS, launched here at Lyster Army Health Clinic and Brown Dental Clinic.

What is the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal?
Along with the new EHR, the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal is a secure website available 24/7 that gives you access to your health information. Through the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal, you can:
- View health information
- Schedule appointments with your Primary Care Manager
- Communicate securely with providers
What does this mean for me?
MHS GENESIS Patient Portal has replaced TRICARE Online, including the patient portal and secure messaging at this facility.
Search key word is "Novosel" when searching for listing of Lyster Providers or Services.
Accessing the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal:
You need to have accessed care at a site using MHS GENESIS. This can be as simple as filling a prescription at Lyster Army Health Clinic, or having an appointment with your provider in the clinic.
All active duty personnel have a record of care established in MHS GENESIS during inprocessing at Fort Novosel.
You will need to establish a DS Logon account by creating a username and password at the following website: https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/identitymanagement.
*Please note: The process of completing the online application to establish a DS logon account takes approximately 10 minutes and some of questions may seem intrusive, but it’s to protect your information. The intent of asking for this level of information is to eliminate the chance of unauthorized access to your health information. This application only needs to be done once to establish your account. Active duty and any other personnel with a common access card, or CAC, may use that to login through the DS Logon site.
Note: All sponsors should validate “Relationship” settings to ensure spouses can select and view their dependent’s portal in their Patient Portal. To update visit: https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/identitymanagement.
Establishing a DS LOGON and accessing the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal
To create and then access the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal, visit https://my.mhsgenesis.health.mil/.
If you do not have a common access card (CAC) or a MyPay account, you will need to create a DS Logon account to access the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal.
To ensure MHS GENESIS can confirm your identity and provide the highest levels of cyber security and safeguards of your health information, you will be required to complete a brief verification process. You will be provided 3 minutes to complete a 4-question quiz to verify your identity. Responses may include providing your DoD ID number (found on your military ID Card), and some personal information including financial questions, past addresses, etc.
You will create your MHS GENESIS Patient Portal password in the online registration process. A new password will need to be created every 180 days
