Lockheed Martin Snags Deal to Advance, Secure EHRs

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) will work with the Nationwide Health Information Network to support and secure electronic health records and the exchanges the information run on. The deals are valued at $9 million over two years.

According to the firm, “Lockheed Martin will create new reference implementation software to support the development, testing and adoption of future Nationwide Health Information Network capabilities. The second contract calls for the development of real-world demonstrations and pilots for emergent Nationwide Health Information Network capabilities.”

“These pilots assess not only the technology and standards associated with the Nationwide Health Information Network, but also provide a test-bed to evaluate the interaction of all those elements required for secure interoperability among healthcare stakeholders, ” said Michael Leff, Director, Lockheed Martin Health Information Management Solutions. “This is the equivalent of taking a new medical therapy out of a controlled clinical trial and assessing the value of that therapy in a real-world setting.”
