Google has become the latest team member on PricewaterhouseCoopers' bid for the Department of Defense Healthcare Management Systems Modernization EHR contract.

Google joins EHR vendors DDS, Medsphere Systems and MedicaSoft and systems integrator General Dynamics Information Technology on PwC's bid team.

PwC's proposal is called the Defense Operational Readiness Health System, and features a secure open source EHR which also allows for ongoing innovation to keep the system abreast of emerging digital technologies, according to a news release announcing Google's addition to the bidding team.

"Google is known for its expertise in innovative, secure and open technologies, and the power of Internet scale," said Scott McIntyre, PwC's global and U.S. public sector leader. "Their capabilities can complement our proposed open-architecture solution and bring added value, agility and flexibility to the new Military Health System."
