The Defense Department is seeking information on minimum infrastructure requirements for building a new department-wide electronic health record system, Defense Systems reported Wednesday.
Kevin McCaney writes the DoD Healthcare Management System Modernization program office issued a request for information to ask interested vendors for outlines of elements such as as hosting, network, device and site components.
DoD intends for the new commercial EHR software to replace the department’s AHLTA health records system, according to the report.
Information on request for proposals will next be issued in a technical data repository to cover communications infrastructure, technical performance metrics, as well as site, end-user and device characteristics, the report says.
Interested companies are advised to submit their responses through the Space and Naval Warfare System Command’s e-Commerce website until Friday, Defense Systems reports.
