HP to Help VA Medical Centers Track Assets, Supplies; Marilyn Crouther Comments

HP Enterprise Services will provide Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers a real-time location system for tracking assets, medical supplies and surgical instruments as a prime contractor.

Through the 18-month contract, the company said it will connect the centers to the VA’s Veterans Integrated Service Networks 11 inpatient healthcare network, comprised of seven VA medical centers in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.

The company holds a potential $543 million contract with the VA to provide the system over a five-year period.

The company has worked with the VA for 14 years in delivering healthcare to patients, said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager for the U.S. public sector.

Crouther added in a release the VA is using the real-time location system to modernize and meet federal healthcare requirements, as well as to provide patients a new platform.

The company will provide the VA program management, operations planning, implementation management, hardware and software and help implement site readiness.

Small businesses including Intelligent InSites, WaveMark and Censis are working with HP on the VISN 11 contract and the team has worked to implement the system at the VA’s Ann Arbor, Mich. medical center since November 2011.
