GDIT Secures $2.5B Indian Health Service Contract for EHS Modernization

The Indian Health Service has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology a potential 10-year, $2.5 billion indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for electronic health record system modernization.

Under the agreement, GDIT will replace IHS’s current platform with a cloud-based enterprise EHR system from Oracle Health. The new system, which will be hosted in a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program-approved cloud environment, will enhance data access and sharing across IHS and tribal health facilities across the United States.

The IDIQ has a five-year base period and five option years, GDIT said Monday.

The contract follows other awards GDIT secured in 2023 for systems modernization supporting health care agencies.

In October, the company received a potential seven-year, $450 million contract to continue managing and upgrading the Healthcare Integrated General Ledger Accounting System. According to GDIT, the system improves financial oversight, maintains accurate program records and handles up to $2 trillion in health care payouts annually.

In June, the New Mexico government awarded GDIT a potential eight-year, $39 million contract to upgrade the state’s Medicaid Benefit Management Services system, which is used to process claims, detect fraud and provide other Medicaid programs.
