Report: Defense Dept EHR Contract Competition Down to Three Teams

medical health doctorThe Defense Department has set a competitive range for its potential $11 billion Healthcare Management System Modernization contract to narrow down the list of competing teams on the program to three, Nextgov reported Monday.

Frank Konkel writes the Pentagon established the range in a presolicitation notice issued Thursday to maintain its plan to issue a contract award by June 2015.

Nextgov lists these three teams as the remaining contenders for the DHMSM contract:

  • Allscripts, Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) and HP (NYSE: HPQ)
  • Accenture, Cerner (Nasdaq: CERN) and Leidos (NYSE: LDOS)
  • Epic Systems and IBM (NYSE: IBM)

A bid from a fourth team of PwC, DSS, General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) and Medsphere fell outside the Pentagon’s competitive range, Konkel reports.

DoD started to evaluate the bids in October,  according to the report.
