Coast Guard awards $14 million EHR contract

InformationWeek, October 12, 2010

Epic Systems has been awarded a $14 million contract by the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) to establish an electronic health record (EHR) system that will meet meaningful use requirements as well as help the Coast Guard transition from a paper-based system to digitized health records.

Announced Oct. 4 on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the contract will have a base period of one year, with four one-year option periods, for a total of 5 years. The contract calls for Epic to install its Epic Ambulatory solution within the U.S. Coast Guard environment, provide functionality unique to that environment, support the USCG Continuity of Operation (COOP), and provide support services including training, testing, help desk, and ad-hoc support.
