ECS announced on Thursday that the Naval Information Warfare Center Defense Health Information Technology Division has awarded a potential four-year, $116M to ECS to lead the agency's Federal Health Information Technology Infrastructure Service Modernization contract.
ECS will lead the migration of legacy IT infrastructure to the newly consolidated system, known as the medical community of interest, or MedCOI, while addressing complex privacy and cybersecurity concerns.
The company will provide Desktop to Datacenter, or D2D, IT modernization and cybersecurity solutions to the DHA and other federal health IT customers as well as technical planning and solution requirements development; system requirements and design; system build and integrate; test, produce, and deploy and lifecycle sustainment.
“We are honored to lead the implementation of the D2D, which will support U.S. military members and their dependents worldwide,“ said Jim Kier, senior vice president for cyber solutions and digital modernization at ECS. “ECS has been integral in the design, development, and fielding of DHA's Desktop to Datacenter transformation initiatives. We are proud to support this next phase of modernization for military healthcare.“
The project will result in greater efficiency, ease and access for the nation's more than 9.4M active duty personnel, military retirees, and military families seeking medical care in U.S. military treatment facilities around the world.
“As ECS continues to innovate within the areas of infrastructure service and health information technology, we look forward to serving NIWC and DHA in this critical modernization endeavor,“ said George Wilson, president at ECS and 2019 Wash100 Award recipient.
