ManTech International has received a $10.9 million task order to develop and test a health data exchange software for the Defense Department in an effort to help DoD consolidate medical information sharing initiatives.
The Interior Department awarded the task order that contains a one-year base period of performance and two six-month option periods under ManTech’s General Services Administration federal supply Schedule 70 contract, ManTech said Friday.
ManTech will provide design, development, and testing and implementation support for DoD’s effort to streamline its health community’s data sharing programs and expand existing defense medical information exchange systems.
Daniel Keefe, president and chief operating officer of ManTech’s mission solutions and services group, noted that the company “has supported the interoperability of health data between DoD and the VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) since 2010″ and would continue to provide services for the initiative.
“Building the data bridge from legacy electronic health records to DoD, Veterans Affairs and private sector providers is critical to ensuring quality healthcare for our military personnel and veterans,” added Keefe.
