Harris Corp. has started to implement its suite of services for managing a healthcare exchange platform used by the departments of Defense Department and Veterans Affairs under a multi-year, $80 million contract.
The service oriented architecture works to record and connect various clinical and business process applications for the departments to collaborate and share data, Harris said Monday.
“Millions of service members and their families can begin to experience continuity of care for the first time ever,” said Vishal Agrawal, president of healthcare services at Harris.
“Harris supports the goal of providing a seamless transition for active service members from the DoD’s healthcare system to the VA’s healthcare system upon their transition from active duty,” Agrawal added.
The company also designed the architecture to help DoD and the VA integrate and test new clinical applications before releasing them to the wider healthcare community.
