Amwell, Leidos-Led Consortium to Integrate Hybrid Care Platform in MHS Under DHA Contract

A Leidos-led consortium will replace the Military Health System’s Video Connect solution with a hybrid care platform from Amwell. Work will be performed under a potential 22-month, $180 million contract from the Defense Health Agency in support of the Digital First MHS transformation project.

According to Amwell’s website, the Converge platform offers a comprehensive care approach, combining in-person, virtual and automated settings for a “care-anywhere experience.”

The Leidos Partnership for Defense Health group, consisting of technology companies, will initially implement Converge in five sites, with plans to roll out the platform in other locations in the future, Amwell said.

As part of the contract, Amwell will also provide access to its automated care programs, which include behavioral health and integrated core telehealth solutions. 

LPDH is responsible for the development and implementation of the MHS Genesis. Jason McCarthy, Leidos senior vice president of military and veterans health solutions, said the consortium’s work with Amwell will enhance the patient experience through the delivery of near real-time, self-service support and hybrid care options.
