Company will consolidate legacy healthcare data in a secure, accessible, cloud-native system
FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#DHA--ECS, a leader in advanced technology, science, and engineering solutions, has been selected by the Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic to develop a legacy data consolidation solution prototype for the Defense Health Agency (DHA). This project was awarded as a Cost-Plus-Fixed-Fee, Other Transactional Authority (OTA) contract.
Under this contract, ECS will consolidate legacy data from various clinical systems being replaced by the new Military Health System (MHS) electronic health record initiative, MHS Genesis. This cloud-native prototype will provide a secure, active archive for DHA’s legacy health data, allowing clinicians to directly access a patient’s historical medical records from a single source at the point of care.
ECS will involve clinical partners in every phase of the prototype design, from initial concept through the development of user acceptance testing parameters. The active participation of clinicians will create a more patient-centric system, which will ultimately lead to better clinical outcomes for our nation’s military personnel and their dependents.
“By safely sunsetting targeted legacy systems, this prototype is expected to save millions of dollars annually for the federal government,” said Don Oswalt, ECS vice president of information systems. “We are proud to take an active role in pursuing this cost-effective digital transformation strategy.”
“ECS is excited to support NIWC and DHA in this effort, helping to improve continuity of care while providing significant cost savings for DHA and its stakeholders,” said George Wilson, president of ECS. “We are thrilled to have been selected and look forward to working with NIWC and DHA to deliver this innovative solution.”
