Jerry Hogge, deputy group president of Leidos’ health solutions group, said interoperability and connectivity are among key features the U.S. Defense Department want from the agency’s future electronic health records system, EHRintelligence reported Thursday.

Jennifer Bresnick interviewed Hogge along with Jim Traficant, managing director of Accenture Federal Services, and Travis Dalton, general manager of Cerner‘s federal business, regarding the companies’ partnership to bid for the $11 billion DoD Healthcare Management Systems Modernization contract.

Hogge told the publication the agency wants a health IT platform that can deliver information to clinicians whether they provide care in a connected and a disconnected environment.

Cerner’s Dalton believes the project’s challenge is to link integrated care in the battlefield to care provision in outpatient settings through technology.

“Having the right data, at the right place, at the right time is a really important element of this program,” Dalton added, according to Bresnick’s article.

Traficant said all three companies have worked with DoD on major defense programs and enterprise technology initiatives and he believes this experience will be key for the alliance to meet DHMSM requirements.

“What we want to do, as partners and system integrators, is enable that future state where the innovation can occur,” Traficant told the publication.
