Accenture’s (NYSE: ACN) ASM Research subsidiary has been awarded a three-year, $162 million contract to help update the Department of Veterans Affairs’s electronic health record system.
ASM Research will work to update the Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture clinical application and expand healthcare services for veterans and their families, Accenture said Wednesday.
“VistA enterprise core services will modernize the VistA workflow and information access throughout the continuum of patient care for our veterans, ” said Jim Traficant, president of ASM Research and a managing director at Accenture Federal Services.
ASM will also refresh the computerized patient record system, VistA’s Web-based integrated portal for clinicians and researchers to access patient records.
The VA intends for the project to meet security standards, consolidate healthcare records and facilitate data sharing across the agency.
ASM will also provide technical architecture, clinical analysis, software development, engineering management and training services for VistA.
