Lockheed wins Canadian health work

Lockheed Martin Corp. won the second phase of a multiyear contract to provide an integrated, electronic health management system for the Canadian Department of National Defence, the company said today.

The $25.1 million contract is for phase two of the Canadian Forces Health Information Systems project, which Lockheed Martin Canada won in 2002. The 10-year, $44.2 million program will let more than 2,500 Canadian Forces health providers in clinics across the country share information securely and coordinate care for 85,000 regular and reserve force personnel.

Lockheed Martin is integrating bilingual software for medical and dental applications and making the records centrally accessible to authorized Canadian Forces providers. The program's initial phase, which the company completed in 2004, focused on implementing patient registration and scheduling capabilities at three Canadian Forces bases.

Phase two, the largest part of the program, is expected to be completed by late 2006. It will focus on transferring the current paper-based operations to a fully integrated system that will include scheduling and patient registration functions, clinical order review, and pharmacy, laboratory and diagnostic imaging.

The third phase will roll out clinical notes and orders and integrate management information systems guidelines. It is expected to begin in January 2007.

Lockheed Martin's teammates are Adstra Systems Inc. of Toronto; Dinmar Consulting Inc. of Kanata, Ontario; Purkinje Inc. of Montreal; and SCC Soft Computer Consultants Inc. of Palm Harbor, Fla.

Bethesda, Md.-based Lockheed Martin employs about 130,000 people and had 2003 revenue of $31.8 billion. It is No. 1 on Washington Technology's Top 100 list of prime federal contractors. Its Canadian division employs more than 400 people.
