Harris Corp. lands $54.9 million VA contract
The commercial off-the-shelf solution is expected to reduce surgery wait times and cancellations, increase patient throughput, and improve the surgical experience for veterans and their families, in part by automating some clinical and administrative surgical tasks, according to a Harris news release.
As part of the five-year contract, Harris will install and operate its surgical quality and workflow manager in 11 of the VA's integrated service networks, as well as in the 130 VA hospitals that perform surgery.
Harris Corp. was one of the 15 companies that were recently awarded an indefinite delivery, indefinite quality contract with the VA's Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology program.
