Bill Lovell, SVP and GM of business health group at Perspecta

Perspecta (NYSE: PRSP) has secured a 12-month, other transaction agreement to configure a software-as-a-service platform for the Department of Defense to move Military Health System data into a cloud computing infrastructure.

The company said Thursday it will provide a HealthConcourse digital technology prototype to help DoD ensure the availability of beneficiaries’ legacy information as the department transitions to the commercial electronic health records system known as MHS Genesis.

HealthConcourse is built with a standards-based open architecture and designed to process data in a cloud environment.

Bill Lovell, senior vice president and general manager of Perspecta’s health business group, said the company will work to decommission older tools in support of the MHS modernization project.

Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic awarded the OTA via the Information Warfare Research Project Consortium.
