Staff - Print  | 

Cerner, Accenture Federal Services and Leidos have partnered to bid on the Department of Defense's $11 billion, 10-year Healthcare Management System Modernization contract to build the department's next health information system.

"Our goal is to provide the best solution at the best value — a world-class solution that is highly interoperable, built on modern and open architecture and designed and deployed by a team with unmatched expertise in implementing complex systems around the globe," according to a statement. "Accenture, Leidos and Cerner are committed to ensuring that the best electronic health record capability is available for clinicians, and our nation's military and their families, regardless of where they seek medical care."

Cerner is not the only EHR vendor to be a part of a bid. Epic has partnered with IBM, and Allscripts with HP and CSC, to compete for the contract. The Department of Veterans Affairs is also expected to bid to replace the DoD's system with VistA, currently used by the VA.
