Department of Defense awards Leidos $4.3 billion contract

Staff writer |
Leidos was awarded a prime contract by the Department of Defense (DoD) to provide an off-the-shelf electronic health record solution, integration activities and deployment across the Military Health System.

The contract, known as the Defense Healthcare Management System Modernization (DHMSM) program, is an initiative designed to modernize the military's healthcare system in a meaningful way, enabling patients and clinicians to capture and share health data that can improve the continuity and quality of care for 9.6 million active military, their families, and their beneficiaries.

As the prime contractor, Leidos established a team of proven innovators and industry leaders to form the Leidos Partnership for Defense Health.

Cerner, Accenture Federal Services and Henry Schein form the core team, complemented with a broad range of large and small business teammates, vendors and suppliers who bring proven experience and expertise specific to both the commercial and DoD healthcare markets.

The $4.3 billion indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a two-year initial ordering period, two three-year option periods, and a potential two-year additional term that may be earned through a successful evaluation, bringing the total ordering period to 10 years.
