ECS announced today “that it was selected by the Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Defense Health Information Technology Division to lead the agency’s Federal Health Information Technology Infrastructure Service Modernization (FHITISM) contract. The IT modernization project will result in greater efficiency, ease, and access for the nation’s more than 9.4 million active duty personnel, military retirees, and military families seeking medical care in U.S. military treatment facilities (MTFs) around the world. The four-year, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract has a total value of $116M.”
“The Military Health System (MHS) has a mixed information technology environment resulting from the integration of service networks developed for differing service requirements across the Department of Defense (DoD).

“ECS will lead the migration of legacy IT infrastructure to the newly consolidated system, known as MedCOI (the medical community of interest), while addressing complex privacy and cybersecurity concerns. The company will provide Desktop to Datacenter (D2D) IT modernization and cybersecurity solutions to the DHA and other federal health IT customers. Services include technical planning and solution requirements development; system requirements and design; system build and integrate; test, produce, and deploy; and lifecycle sustainment…”
