Company will deliver digital transformation solution to improve patient care and achieve cost savings
FAIRFAX, Va. – September 22, 2021 – ECS, a leader in advanced technology, science, and digital transformation solutions, has been awarded the Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic Legacy Data Consolidation Solution (LDCS) contract in support of the Defense Health Agency (DHA). As the prime awardee, ECS will work with NIWC Atlantic and the DHA to digitally transform data from multiple legacy electronic healthcare record (EHR) systems into a consolidated solution supporting critical use cases including clinical, release of information, analytical and decision-making use cases.
A longtime DHA service provider, ECS will leverage Agile software development and a deep understanding of the agency’s strategic and tactical challenges to develop and integrate the LDCS solution into existing DHA infrastructure. The company will migrate critical healthcare data from legacy EHR systems to the LDCS solution, creating a unified longitudinal record of care for each patient. By decommissioning these legacy systems, DHA will achieve significant annual cost savings.
“We are thrilled to support the new LDCS system. From initial development and testing through integration, deployment, training, and sustainment, we will work closely with DHA personnel to implement this forward-looking solution.”
