CACI International (NYSE: CACI) has won a $14 million task order to build a data exchange platform intended to help veterans access the Department of Veterans Affairs‘ electronic record system.
The company will develop a data access service that will work to share information between the VA, the Defense Department and other agencies, CACI said Monday.
According to CACI, the Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record program aims to integrate health and benefits records of U.S. Armed Forces members and help veterans receive their benefits.
Ken Asbury, CACI president and CEO, added the project win is part of the company’s strategy to grow its healthcare market presence.
Asbury added the federal government has made interoperability for electronic health record systems a priority.
The order contains a base period of 18 months with a six-month option and is part of a $91 million prime contract CACI won in October 2012.
