Accenture Federal Services (AFS) announced today that it has completed its acquisition of ASM Research. The acquisition was a strategic move to expand the company’s U.S. defense business in the growing military health market.
“Transforming healthcare at the federal level requires close alignment with the private sector, as much of the healthcare for active duty and retired service members comes from private companies,” said Jim Traficant, president of ASM Research and a managing director at Accenture Federal Services. “Our combined expertise in technology, healthcare, systems infrastructure, and mission knowledge uniquely positions us to meet the government’s ‘healthcare readiness’ challenge.”
ASM Research, an Accenture Federal Services Company, is headquartered in Fairfax, Va., and has more than three decades of government experience and expertise in healthcare IT, information solutions and services, data analytics, cloud, data warehousing, human capital management and benefit solutions and agile software development.
Accenture is a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, with approximately 266,000 people serving clients in more than 120 countries. The company generated net revenues of $27.9 billion for the fiscal year that ended August 31, 2013.
