Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) claimed a 10-month, follow-on contract by Evolvent Technologies Inc. “for ongoing enhancements to a military health network that exchanges patient records and images with Veterans Administration (VA) facilities and other medical centers. Evolvent is the prime contractor for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Healthcare Artifact and Image Management Solution (HAIMS).”
According to Harris, this solution will ultimately provide all hospitals, medical centers, and dental and medical clinics within the Military Health System (MHS) enterprise-wide access to, and viewing of, healthcare artifacts and images. An artifact is any file that adds value to a patient’s electronic health record.
“Successful completion of HAIMS Phase I is a significant milestone in implementing the new MHS enterprise, ” said Jim Traficant, vice president of Harris Healthcare Solutions. “This brings MHS closer to a next-generation solution that will help save lives and improve care for our wounded warriors, veterans and their families.”
