IRIS Health Solutions, LLC Wins Re-compete of AHLTA Sustainment Contract

Harrisonburg, VA – May 4th, 2015 - IRIS Health Solutions, LLC (IRIS) announced today that, as a team member on a Leidos Inc. prime contract, it has won a subcontract to continue its performance of software development, systems engineering, and program management services for the Department of Defense (DoD) Armed Forces Health Longitudinal Technology Application (AHLTA) and the Composite Health Care System (CHCS). The contract, with a start date of April 30th, 2015, has an approximate four-year period of performance extending to 8/31/2019.

The Leidos Team will continue its support and maintenance of the synchronized baselines of the AHLTA and CHCS systems as the Military Health System (MHS) begins its transition to a new commercial “off-the-shelf” (COTS) electronic health records (EHR) system that will be implemented under the Defense Healthcare Management Systems Modernization (DHMSM) Program.  

As a key member of the Leidos Team working on AHLTA Sustainment since 2010, IRIS supports the design, maintenance, security controls, and failover testing for the AHLTA and CHCS systems.  IRIS coordinates architecture activities, requirements management, software development, database development, hardware and communications, testing, capacity planning, performance measurement, information assurance & security, configuration management, and build/release management.  IRIS also facilitates, coordinates, and integrates the systems engineering activities of multiple vendors and the MHS program staff, ensuring that system enhancements do not negatively affect existing EHR operations. 

IRIS looks forward to continuing our on-going work with the Leidos Team in providing superior HIT services to the Military Health System. We take particular pride in supporting the Defense Health Agency as it fulfills its essential global mission of delivering the highest quality healthcare to our men and women in uniform, and to their families, at home and abroad.
