SMS to continue providing technical support for iEHR initiative with
recent contract win
Transitioning health records from one complex healthcare system to another involves unprecedented coordination of data and information between the DoD and the VA. Fortunately, a technological solution selected by the DoD and VA and currently being implemented by SMS will help ensure that clinicians can access one holistic health record for each military veteran.
Through the iEHR project the IPO aims to create data interoperability through a single, common health record between all VA and DoD medical facilities. The contract will enable these healthcare providers to access the health information of veterans and active military members across their lifetimes and leverage longitudinal patient records for determining treatment plans.
SMS was awarded a re-compete of the iEHR System Integration contract under the National Institutes of Health Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center’s Chief Information Officer,
“As a Service-disabled, Veteran-owned Business, we are proud to be part of a project that aims to improve healthcare delivery for our nation’s Veterans and active military members,” said
