Harris Corporation has reached a critical milestone in the secure exchange of health information for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) with the successful deployment of its Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Suite solution.
“Harris supports the goal of providing a seamless transition for active service members from the DoD’s healthcare system to the VA’s healthcare system upon their transition from active duty. Millions of service members and their families can begin to experience continuity of care for the first time ever,” stated Dr. Vishal Agrawal, president, Harris Healthcare Solutions. “Harris’ SOA Suite solution provides a solid foundation for business process interoperability between the VA and DoD healthcare systems.”
The company’s SOA Suite assists in the management of care and enhancement of outcomes for millions of active and retired military professionals and families. The deployment of the SOA Suite is a result of a multi-year, $80 million healthcare integration contract awarded to Harris in March 2012.
Harris Corporation offers a full range of interoperability solutions, including IT infrastructure and management, clinical workflow and analytics, health information exchange, and imaging.
