Accenture Federal Services, a subsidiary of Accenture, has been awarded a $98 million contract by the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to operate and enhance the Medical Community of Practice (MedCOP) platform. MedCOP is a critical tool that provides situational awareness and medical command and control capabilities to the Department of Defense (DOD), combatant commanders, and the Armed Services.
The platform enables the synchronization of data across multiple network domains and facilitates near-real-time collaboration and information sharing within and outside the medical community. By offering a comprehensive picture of DOD medical assets and missions, MedCOP aims to increase visibility into unit health, equipment, and supplies, enabling faster and more informed decision-making.
Furthermore, Kevin Heald, Accenture Federal Services' managing director and national security portfolio lead, highlights the significance of having a single operating picture for understanding the battlespace. He expresses the company's honor in leading data synchronization efforts and delivering effective collaboration and information sharing capabilities to the global military medical mission.
Under the five-year contract, Accenture Federal Services will provide a range of services, including cloud infrastructure, cybersecurity, DevSecOps, agile software development, field service engineering, user adoption, and training for the Armed Services. The company aims to optimize the mission-critical MedCOP platform in collaboration with the Program Executive Office, Defense Healthcare Management Systems.
Chris Van Berkel, managing director and military health lead at Accenture Federal Services, also emphasizes the company's pride in partnering with the DHA to enhance the MedCOP platform. He anticipates that the improved platform will offer greater insights into DoD medical assets and missions, empowering decision-makers with timely information to drive faster and more informed actions.
