A team of contractors including Dell has won a $45 million task order to implement a system for archiving and sharing clinical images at U.S. Army and Navy hospitals, the company said Wednesday.

The team, including Brit Systems and Acuo Technologies, will provide 49 hospitals and other medical facilities with Dell’s Unified Clinical Archive for sharing images between military bases and branches worldwide.

The team won the order through the Digital Imaging Network Picture Archiving Communications System III contract.

“With Deltek estimating DoD healthcare costs to have increased from $18 billion in 2001 to $40 billion today and the VA’s up from $20 billion to $40 billion in that time, our military needs more modern and innovative healthcare solutions to enable better and more flexible care,” said Troy West, vice president and general manager for Dell’s federal business.

Hospitals use the on-premise UCA to manage, sort and store images used in radiology, cardiology, neurosurgery, endoscopy, mammography, digital pathology and other clinical specialties.

The hospitals will have a vendor-neutral archive to integrate storage and services in picture archiving and communications.
