Dell was chosen by the United States Navy Medical Logistics Command and the United States Army Integrated Clinical Systems PMO along with its partners BRIT Systems and Acuo Technologies, to implement Dell’s Unified Clinical Archive (UCA) solution. Under this contract, Dell and its partners will provide the Army and Navy with an on-premise, vendor-neutral archiving system.
Troy West (Vice president and general manager, Dell Federal): With Deltek estimating DoD healthcare costs to have increased from $18 billion in 2001 to $40 billion today and the VA’s up from $20 billion to $40 billion in that time, our military needs more modern and innovative healthcare solutions to enable better and more flexible care.
This was a task order assigned as a part of the Digital Imaging Network Picture Archiving Communications System III (DIN-PACS III) contract. The award was made to the Brit Systems team that included both Dell and Acuo. As a part of this $45 million task order, Dell and its partners will help the Army and Navy share Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) images between military bases and branches worldwide through an archive that will simplify the access and sharing of medical images for 49 hospitals.
