Halfaker and Associates, a subsidiary of Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC), has acquired a minority interest in San Diego-based digital technology services provider CivitasDX.
Halfaker made the acquisition with Cognitive Medical Systems, which launched CivitasDX as a joint venture with Agile Six Applications in January and will own a majority stake in the acquired entity, SAIC said Wednesday.
Cognitive is a service-disabled veteran-owned company that aims to help government customers build and maintain health information technology systems.
As part of the deal, CivitasDX will now operate as a JV between Halfaker and Cognitive. The two stakeholders work together under a mentor-protege program run by the Small Business Administration.
The new partnership comes more than one month after SAIC completed its $250 million acquisition of Halfaker.
Halfaker first teamed up with Cognitive in 2016 to offer clinical informatics and decision support tools to the Department of Veterans Affairs through the VA’s Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology Next Generation contract.
