Legacy Data Consolidation
ECS Named Prime Contractor for Legacy Data Consolidation Solution Effort
ECS, the federal government segment of information technology services provider ASGN, has received a contract from the Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic Division to support work for the Defense Health Agency’s Program Executive Office Defense Healthcare Management Systems, Enterprise Intelligence and Data Solutions Program Management Office.
As prime contractor, ECS will help the DHA and NIWC Atlantic digitally transform data from legacy electronic health care record systems into a consolidated solution.
The company will develop and integrate the LDCS system into existing infrastructure within the DHA using Agile software development and its understanding of the agency’s tactical and strategic challenges.
The result will be a unified longitudinal record of care for patients, ECS said in a press release. The migration will allow the DHS to decommission its legacy systems and achieve “significant” annual cost savings, the Fairfax, Virginia-headquartered company said.
The work with NIWC Atlantic and the DHA will cover everything from initial development and testing through integration, deployment, training and sustainment, according to Keith Quigley, the senior vice president of enterprise solutions at ECS.
ECS Chief Operations Officer John Heneghan commented on the new contract, noting that the company has been a partner of the DHA for many years.
“We are honored to pioneer a data solution that provides a single point of access for legacy medical records, while achieving new efficiencies and cost savings for DHA,” Heneghan said.
NIWC Atlantic awarded the LDCS other transaction agreement to ECS through the Information Warfare Research Project.
