Dell Wins $45M US Army, Navy Contract to Provide Next Gen Healthcare Solutions
Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) announced today it was chosen by the United States Navy Medical Logistics Command and the United States Army Integrated Clinical Systems PMO along with its partners BRIT Systems and Acuo Technologies, to implement Dell's Unified Clinical Archive (UCA) solution. This was a task order assigned as a part of the Digital Imaging Network Picture Archiving Communications System III (DIN-PACS III) contract. The award was made to the Brit Systems team that included both Dell and Acuo. As a part of this $45 million task order, Dell and its partners will help the Army and Navy share Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) images between military bases and branches worldwide through an archive that will simplify the access and sharing of medical images for 49 hospitals.
Under this contract, Dell and its partners will provide the Army and Navy with an on-premise, vendor-neutral archiving system that will have a very positive impact on the quality of care^1 for military families. This solution will give medical providers electronic access to patient imaging records in a timely and seamless manner that enables better coordination of patient care regardless of where the patient's duty station might be and also addresses both healthcare and Department of Defense (DOD) security and continuity of operations requirements.
