Orion Health awarded subcontract in DOD's military modernization project

The Department of Defense has awarded Orion Health a subcontract to link disparate IT systems and facilitate the interoperability between them as part of the Defense Healthcare Management System Modernization Program.

Orion Health joins the Leidos/Cerner/Accenture team which in July won the DOD's contract to overhaul the military's health records.

Orion Health, a population health management provider, will utilize its Rhapsody Integration Engine to link the DOD's new Cerner EHR system to civilian facilities.

"Orion Health is proud to be part of the Leidos Partnership for Defense Health, the team that has been selected as the best value solution for the DHMSM contract," said Paul Viskovich, president of Orion Health. "Together, our qualified and experienced team is working with the Department of Defense to deliver a world class interoperable electronic health records solution for our nation's armed forces, their families and beneficiaries."
